Well, yes, Washington, DC, is the same way. I'm certainly speaking from the perspective of a visitor, and it was a nice city to visit. Interesting history and architecture, and great food if you search a little.
Right now, I am in Guadalajara, and standing out like a sore thumb, at least in terms of height and complexion. Good thing I brought plenty of button down shirts and jeans. That seems to be the uniform here for most guys.
I have to go to SE asia soon, transition to rain season and super hot. arhghghghghghhg
Oh yeah: any super cool store in bangkok I might not know about? (never did SF-approved shopping there just markets).
I also need to stop in Amsterdam soon so any new stores/etc (same thing, already know the city etc.) otherwise its applepie and chilling.
