Right now? Lima is the obvious choice. I'd probably choose Topeka, Kansas over Caracas. Come back to me in 20 years and maybe things will be different.

Christchurch, NZ or Hobart, TAS

i cannot stand tacky Russian aesthetics (always imitating western europe), I'm not into the le Russian ambiance and those USSR ex republics have plenty of it.


Havanna Cuba or Pyongyang North Korea
Havanna, Cuba by a massive stretch. I’ve never been to either, but Cuba doesn’t seem anywhere near as oppressive and dysfunctional as North Korea. Plus, videos of Havana make the streetscape kind of elegant if a bit decayed. Pyongyang looks oppressive from even just a design standpoint.

Ushuaia, Argentina or Sept-Îles (Uashau), Canada

The setting of Ushuaia is also nicer.


Capetown South Africa or Rio de Janeiro Brazil.

Rio as it’s a far more substantial location.

Phuket, Thailand vs Bali, Indonesia (I’m looking at the whole island, not just the main city on it)

Phuket. I prefer its location, thai food and it’s more developed.

Brasilia, Brazil vs Canberra, Australia?

Brasilia is literally in the middle of nowhere, plus dangerous.

Cartagena, Better culturally and a lot less touristy.


Warsaw, Poland vs. Dubai, UAE
