I'll decide at the last minute, I suppose, but input is welcome.
As a non-American I'd choose the second trip, but I think the picture in your first avatar is nicer.

Not much of a help, am I?
Heh. It is hard to get a good picture of Arecibo.

Re: ENTER | Misc. Avatar Contest | Travel Wishes

I wish I could travel to all star-systems in the whole galaxy, I wish I could see and meet all the marvelous people out there and see if the whole place is like any idea ever depicted in SciFi...

I give you, an image from the COsmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite, The Milky Way:

Nice theme. Suddenly, I've got this song in my head.

Aruba, Jamaica, o I wanna take ya ...

Nonetheless, I'd actually like to visit Tokyo at some point.
I'm considering changing my entry:


But I'm still undecided.

I guess it’s not apparent from the picture, but those “women” are quite young.

^^ Actually, if I understand the broken English in that article correctly, those are quite old women who only look young.

Too many agoraphobics in Trekkie fandom, I guess. I'll go with my Monticello avatar; we already have several space-themed ones.

Yes, that’s the joke I was trying to tell.

I understood the opposite. The paragraph preceding the picture:
Hormones have been using with girl for gain weigh, and eye attraction. Indian and Bangladesh are the most targeted area for applying hormones with child prostitution, age of 12-16 years. After an injection of hormones, those girl look older.
On the other hand, the following paragraph seems to say the opposite.

Perhaps I should have spent more time searching for a photo that screams “child sex slaves!” Having to explain the joke kind of ruins it.

Of course, one may very reasonably take the position that making a joke about something so depraved ruins the joke from the get-go. Maybe I should go back in time and not make it. Anyone have a time machine I can borrow?

I decided to make an avatar of places that aren't too far away, and thus much (albeit no too much) more likely for me to actually visit them one day. So, I made an avatar featuring Vienna, Budapest and Athens.
