    A friend's husband visited India a few years ago. In the streets of Mumbai he witnessed a lady defecating in public on the side of a shop in full view of public eyes....that's when India got wiped from my list lol.

    No, but it's something else again. From wiki:
    Officially, the island has been administered by India as part of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands Union Territory since 1947.[16] However, because there has never been any treaty with the people of the island, nor any record of a physical occupation whereby the people of the island have conceded sovereignty, the island exists in a curious state of limbo under established international law and can be seen as a sovereign entity under Indian protection. It is, therefore, one of the de facto autonomous regions of India.

    I actually saw the same thing in Bankstown once - granted it was a Friday night and she was sucking the life out a wine cask but still gross and yes I've never been back!

    That's nothing. I see the local teens doing this every Saturday night at the corner deli, lol.

    I wouldn't like to visit any war torn countries. Iraq/Iran/Afghan and the like.

    I've visited quite a few places most people have balked at on here..Like Iran, Kuwait, Afganistan, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria etc. I've found that despite media portrayals, most of them are filled with pretty decent good people who are open and friendly, proud of their country and culture and willing to share it with foreigners.
