Flight from Sydney to Bangkok is almost 10 hours, only 30 mins. shorter than Athens-Bangkok.
If you fly from Georgia/Armenia it's only 8 hours and 15 mins. to Bangkok.

Should I start the American flag waving now, or is it too late?

Armenia is not in Europe BTW. Sydney is far from Bangkok so is London, Paris and Rotterdam. Yet from Perth to Bangkok it is 7 hours. Darwin to Bangkok it is 5 hrs 40 mins.

I think these threads are a bit biased, since a lot of you are from the States.

Sydney is NOT LA. By any stretch.

San Francisco is a terrible junk city filled with homelessness & poverty.

San Jose is a clean and prosperous city.

There are certainly areas of S.F that have a fair share of blight but it doesn't define the city. There are other amazing elements of it that elevate the place beyond that narrowly focussed view. Having said that I imagine in the case of Sydney it would be a plus point over S.F in terms of safety and lower crime levels.

One thing that struck me with S.F when it comes to the panhandlers was that they actually come up to you and ask for money or explain their situation which is a bit unnerving. I'm used to them just sitting on the street with a sign and saying nothing.

Yeah your right LA is better than Sydney.

San Francisco panhandlers can be bold and at times, outright aggressive! Many of them have no problem telling you about yourself if you ignore them.
