    America is a place I'd love to live at for a bit in the future.

    How hard was it to get your visa Dog?

    Japan. Always been fascinated by the place ever since the first time I watched Hong Kong Phooey. I really should go, there's nothing stopping me....apart from sheer bloody laziness.

    I thought he was a Kung Fu (Chinese) cartoon dog set in America, created by American animators.

    I'm in US now, but will be in LOS in May. If they kicked me out, immediately after burning the place down, I'd go to ...

    Laos.


    My wife's granny and a shitload of in-laws still live in Vientiene. We got married there and I had a somewhat-less-than-positive impression of the place. The whole communist thing just isn't quite kosher. But in a few years, I could fix it.

    You're a British cit, aren't you IM? If you are, you just jump on a plane and get a 3 month visa upon arrival.

    ^I think you need a "machine readable" passport - or whatever they call them - otherwise you need to get a visa before you arrive. At least, that's what I was told.

    There may be some new rules from the Dept. of Homeland Insecurity. Except for one brief visit a year ago, I haven't been back to the states recently.

    I've just checked and you're right - thanks. Apologies to anyone who used this information in a report for work or a doctoral thesis - it was originally posted in good faith.

    A friend went to New Zealand and the scenic photos were increddybubble. Aus is also attractive, but I'm not sure I'd like to stay in the capital city of Sydney.
    Back off Margaret, you're on a sugar rush!

    ^^ooh yeah, a train journey through China, that would be good......What was that other great train journey?.....Hull to Birmingham New Street....No, the Trans Siberian Express......I like travelling by train as long as it isn't for work and I'm not in a rush, or desperate to use the toilet. There's so much to see out of the window - all those people, all those lives - Where are they now?

    I get goosebumps every time I fly in over Sydney Harbour and see the sun sparkling on the water and boats on the harbour.

    Danbo you fugwit, why would a dog called Hong Kong Phooey make you think of Japan????

    Maybe you were getting confused with Hentai Bukake 3 as they're next to each other in your alphabetically collection of cartoon DVDs

    I will be landing in Manchester in about 24 hours, I chose Manchester, because it means there is very little chance of being stuck near some southern cockney **** for 15 hours!

    Its nice of you to think of others Nick. You wouldn't want to upset an edumacated fellow from the superior south to 15 hours of grunting that passes for the northern dialect.

    Was there in '86. Fantastic place, but it was fairly depressing to see what the Chinese had done/were doing to the place. A Chinese guy had his throat slit in the bazar next to the Jokang temple a couple of days before I arrived, but every Tibetian I spoke to said that as a non-Chinese I had nothing to fear.

    Spent an afternoon/evening getting hammered on the local beer (Chang, I believe it was called) with a bunch of Champa I had met - my camera disappeared, and considering the big knives (more like swords) these guys were all wearing, I decided not to make a fuzz about it - it was at the end of my trip anyway, and it was insured. It reappeared about an hour later, turned out a couple of the guys in their drunken stupor had decided to go out and try to take pictures. When I got the film developed a month later, they were without exception crap pictures (out of focus, lots of sky/ground, feet, etc), but still kind of a unique memory of a great trip.

    Had planned on staying in Tibet for a week, ended up stying there for almost six, as I fell completely in love with a young lady studying at the university in Lhasa. But that is another story, as they say......

    Dunno if I would go back today - have a strong feeling that the place has not changed for the better......
    Any error in tact, fact or spelling is purely due to transmissional errors...
