I was going to suggest that Jan van S. would surely enjoy a trip to
Warsaw...Indiana NOT! It's about 2 hours south of me, a couple miles off
the highway via gravel road. Nearby are Mexico, and La Paz (practice your
Aymara). Also nearby is Peru, which I knew was the home of someone
famous--googled.... James Dean? no. Glenn Miller? no.
Cole Porter, of all people.
For our FICPC I'd certainly go for the Canadian cities Delirious mentioned--
but only in Summer, please.:-)
