Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

Because one of my good friends is living there at the moment (and because Jamaica is a homophobic hellhole), I vote Bogota. Screw the kidnappers.

I don't know much about Kingston, i've never been there and i never bothered to learn about it.
I spent a few days in Bogota 5 years ago (3 days) and didn't really do a lot of sightseeing (i was really just passing by to go to Cartagena de Indias where i stayed a week) but the city looked interesting enough, though i admit i never really went too far away from my hotel, partly because there had been some sort of FARC attack a few days before i went there and i remember there were government soldiers absolutely everywhere. A bit intimidating i have to say Tongue


I still vote for Bogota.

I've never been to Canada so i can't speak about Vancouver.

On the other hand i went to Cuzco in the same month i visited Lima and Bolivia and i found it pretty interesting. The city is very well preserved and of course if you want to go to a historic city this one is a must. My only problem with it was that everywhere i went there was this pretty strong smell of piss, sometimes it was unbearable. I would surely have a hard time adjusting if i ever go to live there but I'm glad i went at least once in my life, piss smell notwithstanding Grin

So i vote Cuzco

Both seem cool, and my vote has no real basis in anything resembling a reason. Cuzco
