Dan....such a place did exist....if only in the story of Candide....by Voltaire.....called Eldorado....Candide and his servant left because he wanted to find his true love Cunegonde again.....and....ummm....rescue her. I would imagine that many of us have left our " utopia" for similar reasons....love is quite a beast to serve.....as Venus in Furs.....infers.

Yours most humbly
