    Good heavens, I won't live long enough to see a thousand "must see" places before I die...

    A few I'd suggest, however (not that I've been to any of them): Paris, Rome, Giza, Macchu Picchu, Chaco Canyon, and the Acropolis.

    Yep, I guess I'm a little biased toward the place people have made....
    If a contact print at arm's length is too small to see, you need a bigger camera. :D

    The drive to Jasper up the Icefields Parkway in Alberta, Denali, Yoho, the Olympic Range in Washington State, the Artist Point area in the Cascades, and Hong Kong.

    Of course, I haven't been to all that many places yet....so I'm biased

    I saw a PBS video once about North and South Dakota. There were more people living there in the 1920's than now. NO industries or at least enough so everone can have a job. so people leave.

    eddie,

    by "loas", do you by any chance mean Laos? If so, any more specific tips? I've done Burma and Cambodia, thinking seriously about Laos and Vietnam...
