My family always have been since 1753.
I don't fully know about me, but when my dads side came over, they settled right here in PA. Yet we see some confederate flags up here... oh Dixie, when will you learn
i'd move up into the appalachian mountains of North Carolina, me my banjo and all the moon shine i can drink. That would be the life.
There is a reason why I left out Southern Illinois and Southern Missouri.
I speak Spanish and English (fluently).
I'm learning French but can't really hold a conversation in it.
Assuming that I can speak French more fluently I would love to go back and live in the best city of them all. Why it's Paris of course!
one poster in 3 pages is living where he wants to live. why is that?
Seattle's ok although the weather gets to me a lot, the price for it being green i guess. i will probably it call my home forever. in another life, i think NYC or Santa Barbara would be tops on my list. if another country, probably either Central London, Paris, Rome or Istanbul. I would like to try Beirut for awhile. and maybe Tokyo.
It rains more in NYC than it does in Seattle.
Somewhere atop an unclaimed oil reserve.
Germany or Brazil
When are you due to go back to the mental hospital ?
Is Belgium really that bad?
For me, no place is perfect.
After graduation I'll do a 3 month trip to the US and see what region/state I like best.
Too bad the best locations are too cold for me ... I could settle for Norway, Canada or northern US if it weren't so cold.
Well, I can't wait to leave ...
The weather for one is just horrible. In winter it's a constant 0-5°C and rain, no snow and high humidity. So you get the freezing feel, but none of the nice parts of winter. In summer, you just need to be very lucky... this year, temperatures reached 25°C or more for only 6 days and it rained almost every day
Crime is pretty high is most cities, ethnic tensions are not to be underestimated in Brussels, Antwerp, Liège or any of the former coal mining areas, there's quite a lot of political instability, the social security is under a lot of stress from the ageing population, taxes are among the highest in the world and corruption is rampant in the south (only beaten by soutern Italy in the EU-15 regions)
Of course, it's not that bad over here. Overall, the north is pretty rich, it's a very free country and there's a pretty good social security... an illness or getting fired won't get you into financial problems. But still ... it's good place, but far from the best imo.
Hmm...well, I wasn't expecting dreamland, but this certainly lowers my wanting to go there.
South africa... somewhere around cape...
Osaka. That's why I'm here.
Glad a person who still lives there can tell Ansar how it is
Well, others here might think differently. It's just a matter of preference.
For me, the weather is too dull anyway (winter just a bit too warm, summer way too cold and rainy) and the immigration problem is quite scary (Mohammed was Brussels' most popular name for newborn boys for the 9th year in a row)
But I'd suggest talking to a Belgian with the same political ideology maybe
For the moment ... only 3 years remaining.
(Cheap university education is a good reason to stay )
