    I know this country fairly well, having lived in most of it, and traveled in almost all of it. You left out of your list New Mexico.

    New Mexico has, I would argue, the most interesting history of any of the 50 states (and I'm aware that all 50 have interesting histories). It also is quite beautiful, containing at least 6 of the 9 life zones on this continent. The lowest place is about 2500 feet above sea level, and the highest is about 13000. Santa Fe is one of the oldest cities on the continent. Albuquerque is older than New York. The Gila is the first wilderness area in the country, and one of the largest, and so on.

    Don't leave out New Mexico, before you go abroad.

    ps. I'm sorry about your relationship's problems here in the too conservative USA. Please come back, if we ever get things straightened out here.
