Fielding's DangerFinder |


Summer vacation: the perfect chance to visit beautiful Urabá – ”the murder capital of Colombia,” where, this site claims, more than 700 people were killed in 1996. If that’s your idea of adventure, then let Fielding’s DangerFinder be your guide to the worst spots in 35 different countries – including the U.S. (1,000 people have jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge since 1937). Despite the gory descriptions and a two-fisted writing tone, this guide probably is useful should you happen to be traipsing around war-torn Afghanistan, where, according to Fielding, between 2,000 and 4,000 people die each year from land mines.
