I presume F+F is the travel forum now, as it mentions the outdoors.
I really want to do this train ride, and see Mauritania. The country is pretty much wild as can be, they even have slaves. There's basically no tourism or anything - it's basically a medieval Muslim country, so it's one place to go to be completely outside the confines of globo-homo.
Also you could even travel to Timbuktu, which brings bragging rights. It's in Mali, which is next to Mauritania.
