One can only go back 400 years using this machine. You have to stay there for a week before the machine can be used again. I would prefer a country where the French, English, Russian, or German languages can be used in an everyday context. A good time to arrive in China would be nice, too. The only things I would do is pick up some Crystal Pepsi, invest in Apple and fund those Narnia adaptations from the BBC so they can make the last three books, maybe talk Portillo out of those scandals he got involved in. These are just things I would do, these are not characteristic of Silver. I could think of visiting an economists or authors he loved, but what sort of places could he visit to bring an interesting story? Where should he go?
