    Sure. I was trying to figure out if anyone had gone to Africa, Asia, or Europe in the last five years.

    Why the hell would you want to go to Cuba?

    The last five years have seen little international travel on my part, unfortunately. Only Peru.

    Paris honeymoon -- November-December 1999. Saw Dijon, Avignon and Lille too. Great time, found very, very few of the French stereotypes to be true.

    Ah, I just saw the "five years" caveat. Cut my list down to zero then. All these places I visited between 1990 and 1998.

    Yes, Canada and Mexico are North America, but Mexico is rather different. And no, it wasn't a resort.
