This is what we think of here in China when we hear 新奥尔良 Xīn Àoěrliáng (New Orleans):

Chinese-style New Orleans chicken.

Funny, it would never occur to me to associate New Orleans with chicken of all things. There must be so many other things I'd be much more likely to associate it with than that.

If I had to associate New Orleans with one food, it would probably be catfish or a shrimp po'boy, not goddamn chicken. (Or beignets, but I don't like sweets.)

I'd like to visit Greenland, especially Ilulissat and it's great glacier. I'd like to go also to the northern part of Canada: Baffin Island, Labrador, and other isles in the north west of the country.

Yeah, I think of crayfish for instance.
But the reason the New Orleans roast chicken got so popular in China is probably KFC.

No, I meant that the KFC in China, besides fried chicken, also makes "New Orleans roast chicken", like this burger:

Or these chicken wings:

And then the Chinese also made whole roast chickens marinated that way.

I would love to visit New Zealand. The first reason is that Ladyhawke the singer, whom I adore is from there, and the second reason is that they have very beautiful places.

I'm kind of tempted to say Indonesia and/or Papua New Guinea. Even though I know especially the latter is probably a bad idea. :para:

Papua New Guinea has a pretty bad human rights record. From what I've seen/heard, Papua New Guinea is plagued by civil war between different groups of people, and this is a large part of the reason why linguistic documentation of its languages is as shoddy as it is. There have always been what people call "tribal wars," but my understanding is that since the weapons used were traditionally bows and arrows, casualties were relatively rare though injury was common; however, with the illegal importation of guns by Australian poachers, they have become much more deadly in recent years. Some studies suggest that half of all women in Papua New Guinea have been raped before.

I don't think so; given the OP, I believe choosing multiple is an option. :)

I didn't realize this thread was that old.

I wonder if I already posted here. :hmm:

Can't hurt to post again though. If I want to limit myself to one option: Eurasia.

Nope! Unless maybe your user name has changed over the years or something.

Nope, I've always had the same nick since I created this account.

I did have another account from years ago (2006ish), but I don't think that one's active anymore. I don't remember the password or email for it anyway.
