... Sri Lanka...


I would probably get all the way to Sigiriya, stand at the bottom looking up at the rickety rusted stairs, and say ''nope''. 

One of the most interesting and mysterious places remaining from the ancient world.

Look at those massive, clawed feet, all that's left of a huge statue.  The official claim is the statue was a lion, but look at them - they aren't lion feet - it seems like it has to have been Ravana.

I rarely ever took a vacation.  The places I've gone aren't really all that special.

I enjoyed my time in Key West.  Spent 2 weeks between there and Orlando.  I was invited by a friend.  I never had the desire to go there but it was a good time.

I like the wooded and secluded areas.  I spent some time in Kennerdell, Pennsylvania.  It's in the NW part of the state. Camping, fishing, hiking.  Sitting by the bonfire. 

Oh.  I've been to the Outer Banks (Carolina) on occasion.  I'm not a beach guy but something about the breeze coming off the ocean makes me sleep soundly.  So that's how lame I am.  I went on vacation to sleep soundly.   ;D

Wait, isn't that how everyone pronounces it?

Bart hears it in a Canadian accent.

There is no such thing... just like there is no American accent.

There's a lot to be said for those trips too (like no parasites, no 12 year old's at remote checkpoints waving AK's around).  Hiking, backpacking, mountain biking...

Oh good, so it wasn't my rural eastern Washington state pronunciation.  'Cause sometimes it is.

So Bart, what is it you liked about the way Fred said El Segundo?

Same thing I like about every 3 syllable word Fred Sanford says.
His voice gets hoarser on anything more than 2 syllables... probably because he was up all night snorting cocaine off stripper boobies.

Well, yeah, that is true.  I'd rather deal with parasites than 12 year old's with AK's.  Yikes!  Dealing with none of that is better.  ;)

He could've been sniffing Borax off the boobies.  :D

I'll take the AK's, that's over in a few minutes.

I don't think Australia is on my list.  They make it sound like every plant, animal, and bug is deadly.

Domestically the Keweenaw peninsula - I like to be out in nature but I don't like crowds.
