What are the particular advantages of living in this city?
It's quiet. It has pleasant weather with very pleasant people. While relations may be strained with our governments, I feel like the people I met were extremely nice, hospitable and judged you on your own merit and not "as a American" or as a "Canadian", etc. I have been to a lot of places where individual people are reduced to their country's policy, such as Pakistan where there is generally a negative opinion of Americans. I think a large part of the difference here is that almost everyone has family who live abroad, so they have a better understanding. - Dec 23, 2016
