That a country is not listed, does not imply it is
a wonderful place. That a country is listed above does not imply it is a
terrible place. I have been to half of them and would love to go back for
either business or vacation. But, I don't have to worry about having money
for food and I can always fly home if I have a medical problem.
We would be happy to hear your comments and corrections. Email.
I made the above list many months ago after seeing a U.N. report (1999?) on the world's less developed countries. Granted that it is in alphabetical order, but now I am struck by Afghanistan at the head of the list of Asian LDCs. The country, one of the world's few land-locked countries, has been an area of conflict and neglect as long as I can remember. I wonder if the recent troubles could have been avoided if Americans, Europeans, and Asians had cared a few decades ago.
