Hi, this is my first post! Sorry to say but after living in the United States for over 40 years, I have finally decided this country is not for me anymore. America was a great country when I was growing up here and I had a lot of fun, but now every thing is too expensive, jobs do not pay enough, its too crowded, too much crime, greed, politics and I could just keep on going. And its only going to get worse, never better. Its a shame this country had to end up like this. I feel like Im breaking up with a long time girlfriend by leaving, but when you turn my age (48), you start realizing what you want in life and living in America is not it. I want to go back to the country where I was born (Cuba), but thats not possible right now, not until Castro is dead (and he WILL die someday). It will be different in Cuba then. In the meantime, maybe I'll live in Costa Rica or Spain and travel europe for a while. Anyone have any suggestions or comments?

Yeah sounds good but

I think that spain(europe) is a lot more expensive then the us is so if money is the issue then think about that before you come :)
