New York Times "45 Places to go in 2012"

http://travel.nytimes.com/2012/01/08/travel/45-places-to-go-in-2012.html

Hmm, Panama, Finland, London, Tokyo… I guess there is some interesting stuff going on there lately… #5 Oakland, CA… Wait what? “New restaurants and bars beckon amid the grit.” Is this a civilized way of saying “Get drunk while accosted by crazy hobos?” 

At least it is ranked higher than #33 Uganda. Still can’t get over Forrest Whittaker hanging James MacAvoy by his skin in that movie…

“Making profit is important, but it is not more important than being tolerant and understanding towards others.” -klara

I realize the purpose of the article is more about interesting places in the world right now, and not a legitimate travel plan. But man, I wish I had the time/funds to get around to half as many places in a year.

Between this and the vacation thread I’m really getting the itch to start making my summer plans

#5 Oakland, CA… Wait what? “New restaurants and bars beckon amid the grit.”

I live in San Francisco, and I’m not even going to be making a trip to Oakland in 2012. Gross….

Thanks for this. 2012 is gonna be my year to travel.
