Well, Tucson is in Arizona.. .close to Calli, but not quite.
It's growing a bit and getting more hip, but it's a sprawl and unless you live in the newly thriving downtown area, you need a car as the public
transport doesn't run late-night. The winters ARE chilly, but 50 or 60 during the day is better than most places in the u.s. and the chill doesn't
last long, but the 7 months of over 100 degree heat can test even the most dedicated desert rat... it isn't for everyone,and the morons saying "but
it's a dry heat" haven't been here in July-August when the rains make it tropical steam bath.
The desert and mountains around the city are fairly amazing, though, and the cost of living is pretty cheap.
Water... we already have one of the best water conservation programs in the world, but import the bulk of it from the Colorado River and the
projections say there will be a serious lack of water for all the south-western states... soon... so maybe rent?

etax2: and the economy is iffy... if you come here without a skill or degree, it takes more luck than in other places to make it, but the people and
ambiance are relaxed and friendly... downsides, besides heat and iffy economy, are poisonous critters and a fungus that grows in the soil called
"Valley Fever" that can be a problem for frail immune systems... infection isn't exactly common, but newbies should be told about it. So if you're in
an Ohio Rustbelt scenario, there are worse places to move to... Phoenix is a bigger city with a better economy, but it's hotter and even more like a
giant strip mall.
Tucson is definitely more ...er "charming." Any further questions will be answered 'cause we're bored here .. . heh, at 4 in the morning,
