Where in the World Should We Go? Part 3 - 5/18/09

We've narrowed it down to 7. Help us narrow further!

See notes below.

RUSSIA This is from my friend Sarah:
"I heard this great idea from one of Jeff's friends: the trans Siberian rail road. Basically, get on train, drink lots of Russian vodka, sleep it off on train (thus satisfying the mother's need for safety), get off train every so often, and arrive in Moscow to disco party with the Russian babes."
SWEDEN As two of the whitest people ever, my brother and I wanted to go to Scandanavia and meet some of our Aryan kin. Sweden seems like as good a place as any, especially since we may have friend of a friend (of a friend's wife) there.
THE AMAZON I like the idea of piranhas. I like the idea of ancient ruins. I like the idea of rainforests. I don't like the idea of being eaten by cannibals, but maybe if we stick to the rivers we'll be OK.
ICELAND They say that Greenland is all ice, and Iceland is all Green, so I think this is the best pick. We can go to Reykjavík and Hafnarfjordhur and other cities that sound like they got their names from somebody vomiting Scrabble tiles.
EGYPT Sort of cliche, I know, but I like the idea of taking the Nile down from Cairo and seeing where we end up. This is also one of the few Middle Eastern countries one can go to these days without fear of getting stabbed.
DUBAI This is the other Middle East destination where you won't get stabbed... if only because any criminals would probably rather stab the other tourists who have 1,000 times as much money as we do. Oh, and there are also baller casinos and rotating buildings here.
INDIA Ever since Slumdog came out, this is totally in, and I want to see if that many people can really fit (sadly) into one slum. We also may have a connection who can show us Indian life as it is to an Indian.

Turns out Time-Machine back to Pangaea just wasn't feasible.

I wrote a book!

My ridiculous quest to roadtrip to all 48 contiguous states in 48 days.
