I'd like to see the wildlife of India but the pollution, trash, and unsanitary conditions make me not want to visit. I'm a guy so not so worried about the men.

I have a mental list of places I want to visit and it does change, but I don’t think I have ever “crossed” any off for any reason besides visiting them. They simply go lower or higher in the ranking.

Now there are places I was disappointed in, like Miami and Beijing and the sights in those places. Ask me again in 50 years...

South Africa is the closest I suppose, the current situation has me concerned, but it wouldn’t stop me from going. That said it has lowered on my bucket list. When I left college I wanted to move to S Africa and start a safari business. I may have dodged a bullet there.

I also feel a little bit this way about London but not as much. I would still consider that trip if the opportunity ever presented itself.
I live in France now and travel to different regions each season. Itís pretty safe and agreeable.

For me, Romania, used to think it would be cool but doesnít seem so.
New Orlťans. Itís a bit special only in the US context after all.

What do you mean in the U.S. context?

Except New Orlean's isn't like anything that exists in France. It's a totally different culture.
