Cambodia stressed me out but it was a great place. I doubt Iíll be travelling from NZ anytime soon, though! The prices are going to be even more prohibitive than they were before, for the foreseeable future. 😐

We can afford a higher rent in some cities because my husband gets paid more - but probably not in DC. He gets paid the most by banks and insurance companies, so wherever there are clusters of those, he earns a lot more. We were considering a move to London, from Singapore. Actually there were good opportunities in Toronto but I think that was more about government subsidies than local conditions

If it had just been the two of us we wouldnít have come back. But we were Ďgoodí parents and put the kids first and decided to bring them home to NZ to be close to family and form a connection with their homeland. Which turned out to be an unexpectedly excellent decision for them....I think interruption to normal life has been less in NZ than almost anywhere else. But we hadnít planned for that

i used to hate living in south florida, mostly because of the people and the general attitude. after living for just over a decade now "up north" in reputedly friendly cities, i can say that people are assholes everywhere but the weather is great in florida and i'd rather be there.

London is more expensive than DC. Although, if you could live in London without buying a car it might be cheaper. In most of DC white people send their kids to private school ($20k per kid per year), which also doesn't show up in cost of living comparisons. And unless you live and work in the middle of DC you would need at least one car, which can get expensive.

NZ is probably the safest place on the planet right now.... in terms of COVID. I wouldn't suggest that anybody move to the United States. The education system here is a wreck. There is almost no public transportation. And the Health Care system is bankrupting millions of people.

I only drove through Texas once but my impression is that when you are in Texas you will never forget it because all of the signs everywhere remind you you are indeed in Texas

I have entirely more allegiance to Texas than to the USA tbh
We have more money than your state
We have more diversity than your state
Our economy is stronger
We’re the energy capital of the country
Etc etc

If Texas ever left this country would be brought to its knees. Houston is pretty much a self sufficient city and the future of the country, unless minorities scare you.
