In which country would you (a Hound & more) like to retire?

On the thread about countries with good eats, Veggo mentioned retiring to Mexico.

Where would you like to retire and why? Consider food as the main criteria, but also language, people, mountains, beaches...

If I wanted to cook less and eat out more, I'd retire to Mexico, Vietnam, or maybe Italy. Nice people, on the ocean, great foods - both in restaurants and in the markets. Mexico would be the easiest: Italy is a bit pricey and my Vietnamese is not that good.

If I wanted to keep cooking almost all the time I'm not traveling, however, the US might be best. The land of frozen wonton and rice wrappers, most cheeses, good but inexpensive wines, nori & wakame, aburage, most fruits and vegetables, most rices, most spices, mowt meats (albeit not enough goat, mutton, and organ meats), and so much more.

So, again, where would you like to retire and why?
