The weather’s been wonderful here in San Diego! Cool at night, mild during the day.. nary a cloud in sight.

You’re gonna love it!

If it’s really about a come-on, a state will have to work hard to beat California’s boobalicious San Onofre

Now, I’ve actually come to your state.  You owe a visit here.

If Mohammed won’t come to the mountain then the mountain will come to Mohammed.  Texas is on tour and I just need to cross the Bay Bridge.

Of all the states, the one I’ve found most intriguing of late is The Moon. It’s certainly the least garish.

The most populous state in America is the state of denial. Or maybe confusion.

I bet neurotic state and state of paranoia are quite populous, too.  And if a Republican wins the presidency there will be a lot of us in a state of shock.

I was expecting more of a patriotic backlash to that cheeky remark I made a couple of days ago but that’s cool. I actually find your country/culture extremely fascinating and North America looks like such a beautifully rich and varied continent - geographically awesome.

If I was to bring my kids to the states, where would be a good place to linger and soak up an authentic American vibe. A safe, clean, friendly, non-touristy sort of place with good food (and wine). I haven’t been to the US since I was seven and no trips are planned for the near future but I would one day like to show my kids some wonders of the North American continent, perhaps in a few years when they get a bit older. I like the look of staes like Oregon, Montana and Maine. Any other suggestions? What are your favourite holiday destinations of the secluded gem type? I promise I won’t tell anyone!

Take a drive up the west coast from Santa Barbara to Seattle.  Grand Canyon is worth a look, too.  Stay away from Texas.  New Mexico is fun though, especially the northern part of the state.

Yeah, get real.  Due to its size, there is no definitive part of the US.  I feel like I need a passport when I travel more than 20 miles east of the West Coast.

Take a section of the US you would like to see (coast, mountains, desert, forest, city, homogenous, diverse, crazy, sensible, hot, cold, crowded, empty) and go there.  But where ever you go you’ll probably agree with the Chinese translation for the USA - Beautiful Country.

Thank you burt. The West Coast journey would be amazing and New Mexico sounds interesting too.

I knew a girl who went caving there (with her husband) and stayed underground for two weeks. She was mapping parts of an extensive system that had never been previously explored. They had to make sure that everything that was taken in was carried out again so as to preserve the pristine nature of this delicate environment. Human waste had to be stored and carted out at the end of the two weeks. Now that’s a different sort of getaway. Camping that doesn’t require a tent at least. I’d rather go fishing personally.
