Hi from blue_pete. Liked your review of Broken Flowers, which has just opened in South Africa (SA). As for your resolution to visit a country that is not the US and not connected to the US by land, you should consider visiting South Africa. It's a beautiful country but also interesting in terms of being both First World and Third World. We are quite critical of US foreign policy but also look to the US as the leader in business, politics and of course entertainment.
