3 Cities You Never Want To Visit

the Sochi news has sparked a debate at the office... what are 3 cities you never want to visit?




Mine were:


Detroit
Beirut
Dhaka


maybe not in that order.



in the interest of completeness, others in the office mentioned were Calcutta, Newark, Damascus, Mogadishu, Sochi, and Cairo.

Re: 3 Cities You Never Want To Visit

in the US:
Detroit (been 2x, got robbed 1x)
St Louis (been 2x, got robbed 1x)
Baltimore (only driven through, hope to never actually stop there)

outside the US:
pick three cities in the middle east. i'm way too white to be safe over there.
also, Mexico City. my dad went a bunch on business and told me it was scarier than Vietnam because he didn't have his gun.

You'd probably been robbed in Baltimore if you stopped.
Be sure to wear your purse strap around your neck.

Bolded is a great city; plus, you know a chick who lives there and knows the city as well as anyone else, and can take you to all the super fun spots.

I wouldn't really want to visit:
Anywhere in the back-woods of Africa
East St. Louis (unless I"m in the Griswold mobile and get to call people "homes")
Some areas of the Middle East

Could probably change Columbus answer (tbh would go to any city for free fwiw):

LA - Just seems way too overpopulated and fake for me. Southern California seems nice because of the weather and the beer, but LA appears to be the epicenter of everything that's wrong with American society today which is materialism, vanity, star worship (Kardashians for example), and shit tv/movies that are shoved down our throats everyday.


Middle East would be great to visit for the history but unfortunately that might not ever be possible because of the ridiculous amounts of terror in the area. Tel Aviv I've been told is kick ass though.

Well we don't want you!

Everything you mention we do have. But we have so much more. It is truly a melting pot of different cultures. Love this city. So much to do here.

Isn't Oakland making a relatively big turnaround? I've started to hear that it's a pretty big hot spot for a lot of 20-somethings to live.

Poor hipsters that cannot afford SF, no doubt. They are probably putting their life in peril.
