Yeah not fog.

Some banging 70s style silk cream-coloured suits knocking about :lol: I think this is the only place in the world you can pull such garbs off, and how.

When I went to Mumbai the guys were desperately trying to sell me suits. I politely declined.

Go pretty much anywhere in Asia and Indian tailors are peddling horrific garb.

Just back from my US vacation.  Very very good.

Would put my preference as: Philly > NYC > DC.

Is Philadelphia good?

It's a large enough city that it has its share of nice spots, but it's pretty far down my list of East Coast cities.

Unsure about order tbh. I rag on it a lot but there’s no denying NYC deserves a spot. I feel like I want to put San Fran in there too. And Atlanta because I’m petty but could sub in Seattle, Denver, [all big Texas cities] or Miami.

Vegas is a complete shithole of a money sink - fun but a garbage “city”, even downtown and old Vegas. Edit: to be clear, this will absolutely not stop me from going several times a year :lol:

Atlanta definitely in my top five/six. San Fran, Austin, Seattle, Philly, D.C, Boston all in the top 10 too in no particular order.

I enjoyed my weekend in ATL, but it's pretty s*** to get around without relying upon a car/Uber. That's a big negative for me.

Those are the only 3 cities I've been to tbf.  Chicago is next on my list when I go back.

I like cities I can walk around and Philly did that, also the people their generally seemed to be having a good time.


NYC is very good still, but found it too full on and it's really a city of cities.


DC's layout is really nice and it was good to cycle around the monuments etc, but full of lots of bigwigs.

our public transit is absolute ass. And the truly walkable neighborhoods are either really sketch or being constructed now by young money who price out lower to middle class.

But there’s also definitely a ton of sprawl. The “city” in terms of metro area is weird.

Unless you visited during Katrina, I don't know how New Orleans could be underwhelming.  There's nowhere else like it.

I’d like New Orleans a lot more if the food options didn’t feel like the Python Spam sketch except with shrimp instead of spam.

I mean you picked N'Orleans & Las Vegas in your best US cities... some people just don't like that kind of town.

Tenerife is nice, solid 20 degrees and sunny. All British people of course, not my usual kind of holiday but good for a few days lying in the sun.
