Well, a little bit of an opinion fueled answer here, but we'll manage lol
Pretty much, America kicks . Really. You may think or not think so, but IMHO, I think it is the best place to live. Personally though, I am not
talking about big cities, etc. Where I am coming from with that statement is regarding the midwest, where I really want to live. (I live in SF, CA)
If I could pick anywhere else to live, it would be Ireland. I love the green of that place. The rolling hills and the "simpler" style of life out
in the country side just gets to me somehow. Makes you think about the simpler things in life, ya know? Not being caught up in the drag of every day
But as far as things goes towards America, I love to live here. I really do. The diversity and culture of it all makes me grin. Why? Simply because
you have so many choices for everything that you want. America is really a melting pot of society, and a great one at that.
Take, for example, music:
You can get anything: rock, hip-hop, classical, jazz, techno, country (my favorite), etc etc., and all the variations in between! (ie classic rock)
In fact, I'll tell you a story.
I walked into a Circuit City a couple days ago looking for a flat screen TV, actually. And as I walked around just two aisles of that story, it
occured to me that it was a melting pot. They had 10 TV's lined up, to show customers and whatnot, and on them I saw this:
Wrestling, Rap, Basketball, Classical music station, the FOOD Channel, A news station (believe it was Fox News), three TV stations (playing movies and
whatnot), and a local station.
It occured to me that this was a great example of how diverse and interesting our society really is. You get some of this outside the U.S., and it
isn't all that bad out there, but I would definately say I love living in America still.
Well, that was a long reply, so I'll wrap it up, but, BTW: Belgians are one friendly group of people. =]
