Sounds like fun. I'm sure the winds coming in from the coast have something to do with the cold, but that's only at nighttime. As for games, never played Victoria II. Guess I've never been a history kind of guy. I prefer playing fantasy games. Just started playing a solo game of Baldur's Gate.
I'm just going to say yes out of the proportion of Asians in SanFran. Monterrey, eh? I think I've conquered that city more than once XD I play a game called Victoria II which is like a history simulator in that you're put in charge of a country for the years between 1836 and 1936 and I've played as the USA at least once, and I always fight a war with Mexico over California, New Mexico and Texas (and win) But I digress XD How can it be as cold as Canada D: Virginia is like 25 degrees Celsius right now. Maybe it has something to do with cold Canadian waters flowing south from British Columbia. Be sure to thank us for the crummy weather
So, Toronto's like San Francisco except with less irritating traffic? LOL idk, I guess it might be a great experience if I could go. My mom is a cat show judge so she gets to travel worldwide. I'm trying to see if I can go to her next trip to Canada (she's in Argentina right now). I live in Monterey. It's a nice coastal city, famed for John Steinbeck, Cannery Row, and of course the Monterey Bay Aquarium (famous for it's occasional keeping of great white sharks). Right now it's approaching 5.5 degrees Celsius, though. We've had frost in the morning for several days in a row now and it actually snowed where I used to live (Jackson) last night.
Oh LOL welcome welcome welcome :D I don't know, I live in Toronto and everybody's international anyways, so being American isn't really any different as being Korean or Indian or from the Caribbean - different cultures are really familiar, and it's not like Americans are that much different from us Canadians anyways. I hope we are polite as we're reputed to be though, I know I've stepped on other people's shoes just to have them apologize to me XD I imagine urban California to be like Toronto but much larger and much hotter Right now we're having like 40~ degree weather.
Damn, never been to Kentucky or New York. Most I've travelled in the USA was the west coast and the lower midewest. If you ever get the chance, you need to check out California. It's exactly like you'd see in pictures. How does Canada usually approach American tourists? I've been thinking of visiting one day to see if it's as great as Jay says it is.
Louisville, Kentucky. I was in DECA, and that happened to be where ICDC (the final conference) was hosted that year. It was lovely! Everybody was really warm and hospitable.
I've also been to upstate New York, and that was my first experience of bigass Walmarts in the middle of nowhere Still though, the people were nice. I guess I felt like I stood out, but that's how I usually feel if there aren't many people who look like me or if the people who don't look like me all look the same.
Aww man. I don't know if I have anything more useful or meaningful to say but it's something people just have to live with concerning the situation with guns and their laws at the moment. With the availability of guns, the culture, and society in general, I see it as inevitable that every other week or month somebody's going to shoot up a couple of civilians in Anytown USA.
