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.

Geneva seems nice, but Paris is the obvious choice here. I went there last year and i loved the city, i even saw the finishing laps of the Tour de France from my hotel window Grin (the hotel was 1 block away from the Louvre).

if that wasn't clear enough, i vote for Paris, France Tongue

It comes across to me in movies and pictures as greyish and depressing. I of course would not mind visiting it and i would probably enjoy it more if i did. I just dont think its the most beautiful city in the world. Plus as far as history gos there are far more historical cities id rather visit.

WTF man? two of the most beautiful cities I've visited running against each other? Sad
I've been to Athens in 2001. I thought that the acropolis was going to be a disappointment but I'm very glad i was wrong, i found it amazing and i stayed almost a full day just walking around the place. This shows how much i loved it, especially considering that it was July and i got temperatures of about 37ºC or 38ºC Tongue. The city is also very nice, pity i went there during the summer, the heat is very annoying. Although that week i also went to Ephesus and the heat was much worse there, so maybe i got lucky Grin
Oh yeah, and i experienced a mild earthquake one day. I noticed the bed was shaking and i immediately got dressed and went to the lobby in a mild state of panic. Of course when i got downstairs everyone was acting normal and a guy told me these mild earthquakes happen all the time Tongue

I travelled to Prague more recently and thankfully the weather was fine Tongue. It's arguably the most beautiful city I've been to, i absolutely loved it. I spent most of the days just walking around those narrow streets, stopping to eat something and then walking some more. If i had to described everything i liked about the city i could spend hours doing it. It's currently on my list of cities that i HAVE to go back sometime.

I'm going to have to vote Prague. It has better weather Grin (although i never experienced a Prague winter but according to my mom, who went a few years before me, it wasn't THAT bad)

Hard choice, Athens doesn't have plumbing but is sunnier; Prague has plumbing but is colder.

OMG, Riyadh-Kampala in one group and Prague-Athens in another one...

Prague, just because I'm fond of Central Europe. Athens "was" (more than "is") a great city
