Go through the alphabet, naming the most exotic, unusual, or interesting place you've ever been to starting with the next letter of the alphabet. Tell us what made it interesting.

Andorra, the little country between Spain and France, that you have to make it a point to go to---you'd never pass through by accident.

Next, someplace starting withB.

Delhi...the dust, smog, garbage, cattle, people filled metropolis (and capital) of India. The only city on earth where you see every type of mobile transportation imaginable used side by side - bicycle, car, oxen, truck, horse, motorcylce and scooter, autorickshaw, foot, donkey, and even a few camels.

Glen Coe (because I saw Scotland mentioned above, by the way I can also put Glasgow) - It's a glen, in the scottish highlands. Basically put all your images together of what the scottish highlands should look like and there it will be - rolling craggy grasslands and rock. Only thing missing was William Wallace playing "outlaw tunes on outlaw pipes".

Junbesi, Nepal...on the Everest Trail. Nearest road was maybe 200 miles away. You get here by flying in and then by foot. Stayed in a lodge that cost all of 50 cents a night, no electricity or running water of course, basically a wooden platform to set up your sleeping bag. Outhouse was out back. Beautiful town, with Bhuddist Stupas guarding the entrance.
