Not boring at all.
I love New York, kind of like I love my family.
I look forward to visits, but don't ever want to live there again.

oooooh, I don't think I can pick.
The things I like about one spot depend on the things I like about other spots.

I tend to like spots with a lot of time behind them...Tonina, Chiapas, the Grand Canyon.

Some other spots I like are lost to time...the Vietnamese neighborhood in my old hometown, most of New Orleans...

One spot I really like is the Mexican freetailed bat colony in Mason, TX. You have to walk out there, no road. You cross creeks and sand and prairie grass. And then there's this cave down in a hollow, and at dusk 6 million bats swirl out like a fanged tornado, a million at a time.

OK, I can't do a favorite, but here's an unfavorite or five:

Alpharetta, GA. I could entirely do without ever setting foot in that burg again. Cul-de-sac suburban hell.

You can also keep Schaumburg, IL. Even an Ikea can't save that town.

Charlotte, NC. I have a personal grudge against that city and its fvcked-up unnavigable non-system of a road grid.

Provo, UT. Just...no. No.

Foxdale, Isle of Man. The only village I never liked when I lived there. It had a dead heart.

so, new question of the day ?

what towns have you been glad to leave forever?

when cursing a former residence, which dirt felt best to shake from your shoes?

um.


yeah.


i live in alpharetta.

while i can see many reasons for hating many places, and i can see many reasons to regard this area as a suburban idealist's wet dream, i hardly would consider it horrible enough to rank on a list of least favorite places in the world. i don't want to be THAT person who gets all defensive about their home geography, but this question strikes me as fairly mean-spirited.

there, i said it.

its a town i never went to.


one i have been too...

Golmud, China

On the Tibetan plateau, moonscape, meets industrial waste and chinese colonialism. destroyed lives, a "peaceful war" has torn the town, like there is a war going on, constantly, but without the physical destruction, no bombs, but the emotional one. people slaving in factories.

else where in tibet seemed fine, but this one town looked ripped. i later found out the way that i entered the town was banned to foreigners.

^^ Yes. I would love to live on a big sail boat in the Carribean (again) but my very own home sweet home, now just had a week without hot water, so where ever it's warm and one can do with a hot shower once a week just to get the salt off.
