That's it! You broke the law bad enough to where the government has decided to exile you. Good going. And the only places willing to take you are in Africa and Southeast Asia. Would you rather live in Africa or the SE? (100% hypothetical, of course)

My daughter lives in Singapore, so I would go to SE Asia.

In Africa you're more likely to be in an English speaking country.
In SE Asia you're more likely to be safe from anarchy, revolutions, STDs, civil wars, bad drinking water, and extremists who want white people dead.

Depends on the country, but probably Africa because more people there speak English.

I have moved from Europe to the US and know many people who relocated. I also read a lot about it. What really defines a successful relocation is how you feel at home. Important is safety and the environment.

I cannot see where I would feel safe in Africa, but I have not studied the options. SE Asia is safer but pollution is bad many places. I think I would still go for SE Asia but I would have to look carefully before I decide on the location.

Is that why your profile pick is the Danish flag?

Yes. You are not the first to ask about my profile pic, but the first to guess the origin :-)

Africa. I'd start a movement and bringing the entirety of it into the 21st century. Leading it to greatness and hopefully inspiring the world.

It's a lifelong goal of mine...I have a plan.

The issue is getting people to do. Those less fortunate who know nothing but struggle would gladly struggle for progress. Those who are comfortable...usually couldn't care less

Exactly. And the ridiculous corruption in some of their governments...but if anyone could do it, you could kris. Seriously.

The problem is bringing about the change in mindset. We either need a common enemy (cmonnnn aliens!) or something to unite us. At some point corruption may become so apparent we will want change, but by then it's virtually impossible.

It's very apparent, I think that like you said they just don't have a motivating force. And the unification is a huge deal. Half the issues in Africa are either resource-related or ethnic conflicts. All I gotta say is good luck to you.
