Toronto is much the same as Melbourne ...

How odd that the cities are so similar....

Melbourne seems to embrace multi-culturism much more than Toronto ...

I hope Toronto, Australia and Europe can work together, to share a new relationship !!

I live in Cardiff, which is the capital of Wales! It's a small city, so you get around the city centre by foot. The good things: not much traffic for a city, not too crowded, not far from the country or coast and if you like rugby this is the place to be. The bad things: it can get boring, it's expensive, it can rain lots! not a lot of culture (considering it's the capital of Wales)

I live in Londonderry or Derry. It usually depends on what religion you are as to what you call it (pathetic I know). Is the second biggest city in Northern Ireland behind Belfast. The city is situated in the North West of the country.

Its quite an historic city and has quite a few interesting things to see from a visitors point of view. It is small and can be viewed mostly by foot. There are two sides to the city (the waterside and the cityside) seperated by the river Foyle.

Good points:
ummmm...il get back to you on this one...its a toughie!

Bad points (probably reflects much of N Ireland as a whole):

  • Bad, rainy weather most of the year
  • A lot of political unrest (although nowhere near as bad now as it used to be)
  • House prices are mad
  • Job opportunities are low
  • Very little to do except drink (not always a bad thing)
  • Generally pay is very bad (in comparison to rest of UK)

Ok good points again:

  • I guess its an interesting place to visit for a day or two

I live in Berkeley, California... home of UC Berkeley and on the shores of the Bay Area. I am right across the water from the ever so romantic city of San Francisco. Berkeley likes to consider itself the "Athens" of the west... hehe... really though, it's a great intellectual town that takes pride in culture, diversity, progressive politics, fine dining, civil rights and much more. I love it here...
