} Thanks for using OTSI, SUPPLICANT. I've gone over an extensive
} list of over 12,340 possible vacations and compared them with
} what I know of your tastes. According to you, your top concerns
} in choosing a vacation spot are COST, EXCITEMENT, and EXOTIC
} LOCALE. Well, SUPPLICANT, I think I've found the perfect
} vacation! I've listed the best below, but I think you'll see
} the one just for you, SUPPLICANT!
} 1. P'yong-yang, North Korea. P'yong-yang, a bustling city of
} 1,500,000, offers many delights for the discriminating tourist.
} From the picturesque Scud-launchers to the Kim Chee stands
} overlooking the DMZ, you can't help but be enchanted by the
} natural beauty of the landscape and the friendly, open people.
} For only pennies of hard currency, you can enjoy delicious meals
} and quality hotels. Only a half an hour drive away is the
} Yongbon Nuclear Plant museum, where tour guides will explain how
} Plutonium is extracted and enriched.
} 2. Krasnoyarsk, Russian Federation. Once the site of an enormous
} "space surveillance" radar, Krasnoyarsk is now a sleepy college
} town, holding world-famous Krasnoyarsk University. KU made an
} impact when the successfully grew fungus in a completely self-
} contained eco-system. One day, this technology will be used to
} send fungus to other planets. In the meantime, tourists can
} find endless entertainment at the Russian Mafia-sponsored Black
} Market in military goods; the ruins of the "civil" space radar;
} or, a favorite among visitors, the giant ground-based laser that
} was used for "research" purposes. Say hello to the helpful
} security guards.
} 3. Brcko, Bosnia-Hercegovina. Although many historical sites
} of Brcko have been unfortunately destroyed in the war, for example
} the famous Itzoban Bridge, the four-hundred year-old statue of
} Adoman Karobodan, the Gardens of Grpd, the historical Tower of
} Lipdoj, the Museum of Hercegovinan Pottery, the Roman Empire
} aquaducts, the cannon left by the Turkish invasion of 1583, the
} Castle of the Hansburg family, pre-Roman cave paintings, a mill
} dating from the 1700s, there is still much to do in Brcko!
} Warning: those traveling with small children will want to bring
} suitable reading matter.
} 4. Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Haitian for "Port Gold Prince", Port-
} au-Prince has more character than any other Western Hemisphere
} city. Visit the Voodoo Museum, where Charles Gandolfo will
} demonstrate actual voodoo ceremonies. Take a day trip to the
} Dominican Republic border, and watch the follies as wily
} smugglers bring gasoline and oil across the border. Or spend
} a relaxing evening watching the sun set over the United States
} 5. Mogadishu, Somalia. A Somali word meaning "Saigon", Mogadishu
} lives up to its name. Heavily spiced food can be enjoyed at
} the Chinese Embassy restaurant, and there is excellent furniture
} shopping at Farah's Furniture (right next to the American embassy).
} Nightly firework shows will entrance you, as parades of cheerful
} Somalis in jeeps speed down the road. Pick up some souvineer
} pieces of UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters, or just some AK-47s at
} the quaint arms markets.
} Well, SUPPLICANT, I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun on your vacation.
} Please use OTSI the next time you're planning a vacation!
} Logoff at 16:32 EST.
