Who the **** wants to go to America when you can go to Africa?

If I could afford to go, I'd go, more often.

I've been, and from where I am, it's not really affordable for me, atm, and, prices have gone up. I would like to go to see America with Obama as preisdent though. -- I'd hate to miss that.

Fixed.

London and Philadelphia is more of a difference than London and New York... You go New York, you see stuff you see in London except you're in America.

My brother's been living in California ,cause he's a computer geek and works in the silicon valley, for quite a while, on and off. Mostly on. So he sent me a plane ticket and I'm going to see him in 2 weeks. I'm soooo excited. Mostly for the road trip to LA so see some friends and yeah I'm excited.
Going to record in Nashville in the summer and see him then too.
Yeah I know...I'm almost jealous of myself.

Obama as president has been great. There have never been as many KFCs as we have now.

I want to go to America, purely to eat all the foods you see on Man Vs Food. That is my dream.

See amazing wildlife and a totally different way of life, or eat in McDonalds every day and be shot by a fat person..

Yeah, I'll take Africa, thanks

You can come to African America.

That's where African Americans come from.

Really? America or Africa?

East to West and North to South the USA is a pretty varied country, to generalise there is quite bad, but at least the language and much of the culture is the same.

But you're really going to lump all 54 African countries into one option? OK I'll discount some of the small island nations that you might have no reason to have heard of, but you'd consider Morocco and Zambia, Egypt and Madagascar as pretty much the same experience?


No.

I want to go to both for very different reasons. America for the food portions and vegas. Africa for the wildlife and people

What's the over/under on the number of posts before this somehow turns into US vs Britain?

Been to both, Africa a few times. Such a great place. America was also great in the places I went but in a very different way.
