Let's find out. The current list will be kept above in this post

We need a couple of rules though and here it is.

#1 - You have to have visited the country in the most recent post, before you can add a country. A photo of both countries is desirable but not essential.

#2 - If your post is not responded to in 7 days, you may add another country and receive a point. The points are worthless.

I will get things started.

Country #1 is Myanmar

Here I am before crossing from Thailand into Myanmar.

Bridge to Myanmar.jpg

Here is the old border on a bridge from Mai Sai into Myanmar. It looks different now.

Myanmar.jpg

I stayed just long enough to take this picture.

Myanmar marketplace.jpg

I'll bet these folks never expected to show up on a baseball card forum.

If you have been to Myanmar, what is county #2?

Next country: India

I was in India for about two weeks in December 2015 and January 2016. Saw a bunch of the tourist traps (Taj Mahal, Golden Temple) and some factories. I will try to post a few pictures later. We flew Emirates, with a layover in country #3, the UAE.

There were only two rules, both of which have been broken, but that's okay. Perhaps they were too restrictive. If no one objects, I will add Denny's list to the first post and add a few more of my own.

Pictures are always welcome and new countries will be welcomed. Getting to two hundred countries with the original rules would take forever.

Denny's contrite response is accepted, so we will continue with the original rules.
If you have been to Australia you may post country #5 next.

Default Oh the places you'll go!

I've actually put way too much though into this. I can see there will have to be some strategy involved if we're going to make it, i.e. choosing a *really* difficult country will bog things down for awhile. I've been to one really difficult country, maybe two. Maybe 3 or 4 depending on your opinion.

But I have two questions:

1) Are we counting countries that are territories of other countries? Like does Greenland count, or do we consider it part of Denmark? Greenland will be a bitch if it stands alone.

2) Are we just doing fronts, or front-and-back combos (had to make a baseball card reference, right?)? That is to say does the USSR include all these little "Stan" countries that now exist, or are they separate?

I know, Frank, you will crystallize these muddy waters for me!

Tony

Great questions Corporal Boil that I will try to clarify.

I have been to Denmark, but not to Greenland, but have a friend who has been to Greenland.

I have been to Georgia and to St Petersburg in one country, but have not been to Georgia and St. Petersburg in another country, although I have been to one of them in both countries, despite having not been to the third country.

I have also been inside the Berlin Wall, which technically belonged to neither East or West Germany, but have been to both after neither technically existed.

Hope this his helps.

If you have been to a country you cannot spell, check your map before posting.

Okay, since I've been to Bosnia (hi Pete) when it was part of the former Yugoslavia - I will toss my hat in the ring for what is now the Czech Republic, also in the same Iron Curtain timeframe. I was only in Prague and never made it to what is now Slovakia, so will leave that for someone else as per the "one man, one country at a time" rule.

Unfortunately I cannot post photographs since they reside at my ex-spouses place, where all men fear to tread

Also, how to handle Antarctica? Claimed by many and none at all...depending upon who is doing the talking.

Agree. If you took no photos in a country you visited, at least post a postcard if you have one.

No one else besides Ted has been to Greece? Didn't think we'd be stalled on a relatively easy one?

"The rules of a single madman are destiny to multitudes." As penance, Ted should donate his T-Bird to Frank's Auto Trade-Up thread.

Since Ted is donating his car to the ultimate trade up and Frank is accepting his donation and response of Greece... I have been to Greece. However, before I got there, I spent some quality time in Italy.

I think I know what has happened. Because Frank refused to oversee this thread in jack-booted style, it has been left somewhat open to interpretation.

Ted has simply assumed that because the Greeks, at the time of their utmost power, controlled a wide swath of Asia as well as the Helenistic world, that Jordan and Greece WERE the same country, as they were under the same control.

It's an understandable mistake, and I'm happy to first-assist Frank here

Well in the time it took me to write that out someone moved things further, so I will continue this in the spirit of Frank's Yugo.

Italy > I'll go Iceland.

I also have no idea how to post a picture. I'm a luddite. But picture Lord-of-the-Rings geography and women who are supposed to be hot and blonde, but are not.

Just got back from Iceland myself. Definite LOTR scenery and wide open spaces between towns. So will see Iceland and raise you Spain. Spaghetti Western scenery and actual beautiful women - especially in Zamora for some reason...

From past experience, trust me, all rules are considered optional by Ted.

The same leniency will not be granted to others.

Where are the pictures?

Corporal Boil's assistance is appreciated to facilitate moving forward. My updates may be infrequent for several days, but the list in post #1 will be maintained.

Hey guys,

I did not violate Frank's "rules". And, Tony here has given us a history lesson.

2300 years ago, the Greeks occupied Asia Minor, of which Jordan was part of.

In fact, my parents were born in Asia Minor in the Greek town of Smyrna.

Wow, Smyrna! I had to look that up. Now in Turkey, per Wikipedia.

Since we're on Morocco, which I have been to, I will swing it back "our way" and say Jamaica. I also vow to figure out how to scan, and post pictures. When I was in Jamaica, at age 14?15? I thought it would be cool to have my hair braided and those little beads put in them.

I'm not sure you want to see those pictures. Anyway, Jah Rastafari!

Although Egypt has already been mentioned, someone stated this thread needed more pictures. These I took in Egypt in October 1980.

Jeez,

first the USSR becoming the "Stan" brothers.

Then Greenland is really just Denmark without Copenhagen

Georgia used to be a state north of Florida, now it's a country north of Somalia.

Have you been to Yugoslavia? You thought so, but since it doesn't exist anymore you say you now have been to Croatia, before it even existed. Really???

And lest we not forget Denny went to Hawaii and thought it was a foreign country.

So if Jordan was part of Greece, how many countries were just Byzantine?

If I owe Ted an apology, it is offered.

Being the umpire in this game will continue until someone in the stands starts yelling, "Kill the Umo".

I have been to Canada. Went on a month long camping/fishing adventure. Been to the Netherlands many many times. I have a ton of pictures.

Pics in order are from.
Leiden-They have one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world.
Apeldoorn- Out front of the Apenheul Zoo. This place is awesome and has many animals roaming freely around the zoo.
Amsterdam Flower Market-Learned the hard way you can not buy loose bulbs and bring them back to the US.
Zandvoort-Mainly a German tourist destination with an amazing beach(clothing optional).
Last a picture of Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam. Stayed in a house boat behind in on one trip.
