comment Can I get arrested for loitering?
@Karlson: Of course you start with the parking lot. However, parking lots lack streets. The construction site provided a more realistic driving situation. There were multiple blocks worth of territory with nothing of importance about.

comment Can I get arrested for loitering?
Yup. I've had an encounter with a policeman that way--hanging around a construction site after dark. A construction site (a whole subdivision, not just one house) after dark is roads devoid of cars--a perfect place to let a new driver get practice safely. He understood, no problem.

@MarcelC.: He's obviously a tourist who doesn't want to end up arrested for a vague law

comment Can I get vaccinated in another country?
I've had a few vaccinations overseas, no problems. US health insurance normally doesn't pay for travel vaccinations anyway so that's not an issue.

comment What does “MO” mean after the name of a US city?
All places in the US end in a two-letter code for the state. It's just usually they are much more obviously related to the name of the state. Unfortunately, 8 states start with M and MI already got used for Michigan.

comment What is the LEAST visited country by tourists?
@MarkMayo: Not issuing tourist visas doesn't mean they don't issue business visas. It is possible to get in and I've even met someone who has been there. The question is specifically about tourists, though.

comment Some travel forms ask if I've visited Africa recently. What restrictions might I encounter due to my travel to Africa?
I thought some places want to see your yellow fever vaccination card if you're coming from yellow fever territory.

comment Do I need a US visa to change planes in an American airport?
I'll second this. I actually have walked out from the international departure gate to an area outside--the plane was very late and I wanted food other than what was available in the terminal. There was no check of any kind on the way out and coming back there was nothing but the normal security you would find in any airport.

comment Is it possible to get out from the L.A airport during a connection?
@Roberto: As I said, I did it on a connection--that means that's not home base for me. I have no idea where you might buy an iPhone in Los Angeles.

comment Which Shanghai airport is convenient for city center? Hongqiao or Pudong?
Second this. I've only done it by road but Hongqiao is definitely a shorter trip.
