«Ucrania y Rusia son "buenos" lugares en invierno.» :)

Originally I didn't have the word "lugares" in there; I guess I forgot to proofread. :P

Thanks! Your effort is much appreciated. BTW, unless you are really into snow and the cold Ucrania y Rusia son mejores en el verano. :)

I love snow. At least the kind that looks like the Earth made your bed for you.

«Irak y Siria son muy peligroso si no ERES cuidadoso.»


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/m.tastic

Wouldn't the subjunctive tense be used?

No. You might say "Irak y Siria serían muy peligrosos si no fueras cuidadoso" but that implies a more hypothetical scenario.
