  1. Lets see. I work in Manhattan and I decided to go to Oslo for a pub crawl last week. $17 pints. I think next time I am going to have to check Goa out

  2. Weird list. It contains Goa, Hanoi, and Marrakech. But leaves off Geneva, Zurich, and Stockholm.

    As for Oslo and it’s $17 pints, as a resident explained to me years ago, they basically fund their entire social welfare system with alcohol taxes. I believe the word he used to describe a system where drinkers are forced to totally support non-drinkers was “criminal”.
