The hookers in Damascus are among the most beautiful in the world, also the most erotic and have the wildest imaginations. One night with a Damascene lady of the evening would be the highlight of most men's lives

Tokyo seems like a difficult place to live if you do not speak Japanese. I visited Melbourne a while back, I would agree that its a pleasant city. Definitely much better than any major US city by a wide margin.

Sorry tiger I believe you may be a little over zealous there yes you must wear a helmet . Fall of a bike land on your head ? That may have happened to you. There are some park and beaches were you can't drink alcohol if that's a main problem for you I refer back to point one. Your life revolves around Internet and TV mmm back to point one . Some things are over priced but cheaper compared to wrote an standards. My question is did you fall of your bike and land on your head?.

Almost. The Internet is now an essential. If you have poor access the the Internet and cannot access the knowledge and information available, you are at a particular disadvantage to everyone else who can. It's similar for TV, except that it has been obsoleted by the Internet for choice and content.

Given a choice between Melbourne and Damascus, my first stop would be the travel agent, to order one way tickets to Damascus. I lived in Melbourne once, and I still wake up in a cold sweat when I dream about it.
