When i consider my choices and places to live in...
I went with the job that I loved the most - I would not say that I like the place too much - to paraphase a comparison from (Bos/SF/Lon/NY) to where I live:
From a historic city with a gorgeous diverse populace in a thriving walking metro and a melting pot of cultures, to a static, money-oil-driven collection of concrete with a lack of a coherent populace and disjoint societies?
Oh well - it is not that bad but it does make you wonder!!!
