Writer's Block: From beyond

If you died and became a ghost and could only haunt one place, which place would you choose, and why?

I think it would be a place that already has a mystical aura about it, so i would not have to haunt it by myself and have the companionship of more seasoned ghosts.  Some place like Angkor Wat or the Zimbabwean Forest.  If it happened right now and i had to choose today, it would be the rainforest of the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State.  I have never been there, but from pictures it seems like the perfect place for the dead to thrive.  It is lovely, and mysterious, and dark, some of the foliage looks like it could be from Middle Earth or a fairy wonderland.  A respectful ghost, which i would be, could never feel out of place in such an environment.  It would be a privilege to make some small contribution to the mystery of such a place.
