RFK was shit. I'm still pissed about the new stadium but there's nothing I can do about it. I really like the MCI (now Verizon) center. I really miss living there. I was just a block or two away from Irvine...too bad I didn't post back then.

You adored NOLA? Did you drive there? I swear the highways only exist to spell out people's names.

I absolutely adored New Orleans, and L.A, was pretty meh for me. The thing about L.A. is that I could never figure out when I was in the city or out. The urban sprawl is endless. I've never been to S.F. but would love to go one day because I think I would love it, and I'd get to see my 49ers in person for the first time.
San Fran is cool. It's pretty small, but it's a very nice city. Can keep you busy for a few days. And some excellent restaurants.

New Orleans is great - I've been there twice - once in Oct and once in Mardi Gras. Both times were a ton of fun. Very cool people. If you're into the kinda quirky vibe, check out Savannah. It's a beautiful city.

I like philly. For all the bad rap it has, it's a fun city. Philly and Boston make great neighbors. And their little Napolean Complexes are so

I have not been to DC since I was 12.
I grew up an hour north of LA (in Camarillo). LA is just too amorphous to really recommend as a destination spot. It's huge, it's sprawling, downtown isn't all that much to see. There are some definite cool spots, but overall, it lacks the character cities like San Francisco have.

Five months after 9/11 and I was still afraid to fly, so I took the bus down there. It was a 44 hour trip, but I loved every moment, as I was able to see a lot more of the Eastern seaboard that I normally would have. I even spent some time in Atlanta, Georgia (not to be confused with that metroplis in Germany).

Yeah, get thee to SF. Diemen will show you around.

LA is not a city, no, it's just a huge sprawl.

If we're talking international, I'd have to add Vienna, London and Tokyo to my favorite city lists. Vienna, wow, I don't know what to say about it.

Palmer. I'm volunteering at a clinic, and the Drs I work for are both alum. They add "You should apply to Palmer" to the end of practically every sentence. I'm still unsure though. It's funny how I'm hesitant to consider moving out west, yet if given the opportunity I'd move across the Atlantic in a heartbeat.

Well said. There's a lot to see there, but, definitely no on must-see place, and truly lacks character. I miss aspects of it, though, I will admit.

I dated a woman that lived up in Camarillo.

Ah. Yeah I loved the architecture. I had to lead a team of 10 undergrads on a spring break trip there. So I got to meet a lot of people who were displaced, which is why although it is undriveable IMHO, it still holds a place in my heart. I completed my biggest accomplishment to date there: I parallel parked a 12-passenger van in the French Quarter.

I loved the architecture and the history...the ghost tour I went on was cheesy but fun. I'd go back, as long as I didn't have to drive.

Did she know Lou Lamarillo?
Was her face really drab
And covered in scabs?
Was she like a rather tall armadillo?

Y'all should get up to Montreal in the summertime. There's loads of stuff to do, from festivals, restaurants, sight-seeing and a great night-life.

I'm sure you'd dig it out here. I haven't lived in too many places, but even out of places I've visited I still really love the bay area in comparison. Great city life, awesome natural surroundings, nice cultural mix. Cost of living isn't too hot, but it's something everyone puts up with to live out here.

The one thing I really need to do is travel more. I haven't been out of the country since I was in 1st grade (well, I've been to Canada a couple times in recent years, but that doesn't really count...). I'd looooove to spend a month or two traveling around Europe.
