Places on Earth where there is land directly on the other side of the planet.

Maybe ten years ago the Washington Post ran a story about visiting the closest land to DC’s antipode. The genesis was the fact that many people move to DC for work, become sick of it, and declare they want to get as far away as possible.

The closest land to DC’s antipode is a rock of the Australian coast near Perth. The author described a visit to it. The author also discovered that the closest inhabited/inhabitable land to DC’s antipode is owned by France (Ile Saint Paul, I think). He called the French embassy to inquire about visiting. The French liaison told him that they received similar calls about once a year. That is, about once a year someone got sick of DC, discovered an inhabitable island close to DC’s antipode, and then called the French embassy asking to move there.

TL, DR: DC is miserable, people want to move to it’s antipode.
