    I found all the curry houses in London disappointing tbh. Will avoid next time I'm there.

    There are some good ones, you just have to avoid the ones that everyone says are good. Same for Asian food generally actually.

    LA is dangerous, I found plenty of homeless people there at Santa Monica beach. Disney World is good for kids.

    Are you saying it's the US's Chennai? I'd have thought Detroit or Baltimore might fill that role (the latter based on The Wire, of course). Or anywhere in Florida, which genuinely strikes me as God's Waiting Room.

    The amount of flak Chennai gets in this forum is a bit unfair imo, it still has a sophisticated culture. The Indian city closest to LA would be Mumbai, but even Marine Drive has more charm than Santa Monica.

    Bacon naan rolls for breakfast are delicious. Went there for dinner for the first time a couple of months ago; thought it was nice but not amazing. There's a restaurant in Auckland called Cassia that has a similar style but is utterly incredible, one of if not the best meal I've had in my life.

    LA did not grab me as a place at all really, it's just a monstrous city with atrocious public transport so getting anywhere is a nightmare. Went to Venice Beach and couldn't stand it, horrible place. The observatory is worth a visit though, and there is a farmer's market which is really good - in particular the place selling empanadas, that LA classic food - but other than that it didn't really appeal.

    You're not going to get that anywhere in India.

    This is very true. One museum that I particularly enjoyed was the London Transport Museum. Definitely worth including if you're into that sort of thing - and I found it to be less crowded than the others.

    Obviously not. Doesn't make them not nice.

    Went Porto Santo island two weeks ago, having been there previously six years ago. God I love it. Just an amazing little beautiful place. Already booked to go next summer. That's probably me every year now.

    GIMH going there is a great advert for free movement of persons imo.

    Watch the rate of people leaving there skyrocket in correlation to the frequency and volume of his visits.

    Back home, after a burst through Salzburg, Prague and Vienna after Trento. Going from a record European heatwave to 4C at midday is quite the difference
