  1. Some would be interesting, some would be deadly, and some are of no interest. The Vatican Secret Archive would be fascinating, like all libraries, even if I couldn’t read most of the contents. Metro 2 is probably overrated, though would be interesting. Crumbling mental hospitals are no more interesting than any other crumbling building, but they can be interesting. Any visit to North Sentinel Island is a hard no.
