Haven't been reading toto's and buddy's posts?

I've spent 7 years in Sydney, Australia and I'm not interested to go to the US at all. What is there to see? Suburbs, freeways, skyscrapers, fast-food restaurants, etc etc. There's also the risk of getting shot by some mad man or run over by a driver who's drunk or stoned.

I'd rather go to Europe!


According to them, Europe is just as bad or worse.

As for the rest of your crack - seeing that you spent 7 years in Australia, and apparently never left Sydney - it seems that your ability to travel or camp out at places like Yellowstone, Isle Royale, or various beaches of the Great Lakes, Gulf of Mexico, Pacific Northwest, or the Coastal Islands of the Atlantac is out of the question?

Come to think about it...

... it seems that eyeofgod/Morgezuma sounds like another "city slicker" who hasn't seen anything but city streets and shopping malls as well Huang262.  <smile> Then again, how many people that come to this BBS can honestly say they have lived in the countryside?

Not too long after I joined BBS, I came across a post written by a forumite by the name of karenb.  Understood she is an American and works as teacher in China.  She too moves her enitre family to China and one of her reasons - she wanted her children to grow up in a better environment.


... karenb - remembered her sparring matches with northwest (who I believed thought she was another U.S. spy).  As for that crack about the family... you have a clue which thread she said that in?  Seriously, doesn't sound like her...
