Reading about the most miserable places in the world


Last weekend, I was whining about not being able to take my weekend walk in the morning because of snowy ground and I felt like being under house arrest, unable to go out taking in fresh air. Then by accident, I read an article “The 25 Most Miserable Places in the World,” by Lisa Mahapatra. Boy, that is really miserable!

Here’s the list of the 25 Most Miserable Places in the World
25. Mali, Misery index score: 36.5;
24. Mauritania, Misery index score: 37
23. Iran, Misery index score: 39.1
22. Maldives, Misery index score: 40.8
21. Gaza Strip, Misery index score: 43.5
20. Bosnia and Herzegovina, Misery index score: 45.5
19. Yemen, Misery index score: 46.4
