Melbourne, Australia. It has the bestest GM, and the worstest player, in the whole world - me.

Dominus Nox:
I'll say a good thing for someone else's country: In germany they have a system I wish we had in America: Over there, most fines are based on the offender's wealth, and not fixed like they are in America. So, the richer you are, the more of a fine you get for, say, speeding, littering, etc.

In America fines are the same, and a 50$ fine hurts a guy on minimum wage a hell of a lot more than it hurts someone making 6 figures a year.

I like the german idea of basing fines on incone/worth instead of just being the same for everyone, I wish America would cop that idea.

Hey, I've always liked Australia and would love to visit it, as long as it wasn't the season for funnelwebs.

One thing I'd do down under is to see the Southern Cross, I wish I could get a pic of that but can't find on on the net....

Some picture links about Montevideo:

Aerial photo of Montevideo.

18 de Julio Avenue, an important street linking in Downtown ("Centro").

Pocitos Beach, 10 minutes away from Montevideo's Downtown. There are even better beaches in the city, mind you.

Salvo Palace, an iconic building designed by legendary businessman and alchemist Francisco Piria in the 1920s.

Downtown, as seen from the Puerta de la Ciudad Vieja. This gate was the limit of 18th century Montevideo.

Peatonal Sarandí, a popular pedestrian zone and night life hotspot in the Ciudad Vieja (Old City).

Palacio Legislativo, where Parliament meets. Inside, you can find the Hall of Lost Steps.

Solis Theatre.

Mercado del Puerto (Harbour Market), home to some of the best steak and barbecue in the world. It's an iron structure built in Liverpool.

An aerial view of Montevideo and its Golf Club.

Japanese Garden in Montevideo.

A view of the Rambla, Montevideo's coastline.

Oceanographic Museum. No, you're not the only who doesn't understand that tower... :p

Yacht Port in Buceo, middle-to-upper class neighbourhood. There are several fishermen clubs in the vicinity.
