Stay where you are . . .

NPR has a review of Catherine Price's oeuvre, "101 Places Not To Visit Before You Die" that is worthy of perusal.

The Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China and the pyramids in Egypt are all likely candidates for a traveler's Must-See-Before-I-Die list. The Seattle Gum Wall, the Beijing Museum of Tap Water and the Montana "Testicle Festival"? Not so much.

The Seattle Gum Wall? — Ewww! Then there's the Karostas Cietums Prison Hotel, Liepaja, Latvia. That's right, a prison hotel. Maybe they could host the next G-8 there.
