what is, in your opinion, the scummiest, most mean spirited city in the US you've been to? i lived in New York for 27 years but we also have our fair share of kind citizens that usually live in Manhattan are from out of town. Most of the scumbaggery comes from the outerborough ethnic groups like the ghetto blacks and hispanics in the Bronx and the working class Italians from places like Staten Island and Bay Ridge Brooklyn

I always thought Las Vegas would be a center of scumbaggery considering all the illegal, terrible shit that happens there even post-mafia ownership. But all the other places I've been to in Nevada have a country feel to it so i dont know if the citizens that live there even things out

Because retard Foreigners stay in Vegas for two weeks thinking it’s Cancun. Vegas is only enjoyable 2-3 days max. Any longer and you’re going to lose money at an exponential rate.
>>
>>1876943
The fuck? Have you not heard of "impulse control"? I go to Vegas 3-4 times a year, always at least 5 days at a time. I always budget out beforehand how much I'm going to spend for the trip and for each trip day. I have never gone over that budget and usually come home with a grand or two. If you think everyone will "lose money at an exponential rate" you've obviously never been or you're a degenerate gambler and you shouldn't go.

Miami is by far the scummiest, fakest city in the whole country. Been living here for 9 years and I can’t wait to move back to my home town in near Vero.

Absolute shit-hole with the most narcissistic, fake, rude, and selfish people one will ever meet. I pray for another Cat 5 hurricane to flatten it or climate change to flood it out. The only thing it’s good for are a couple of clubs hosting live trance/house shows

NEED MORE AUDIENCE PLEASE

My only possible destination in the near future is Sweden, so i want advice on where to go for some great nature and possibly culture. It shouldn’t be too far north.
>>
Assuming you're going to Stockholm, there's so much to see in the city; it has more museums than any other city on earth, fun fact. The Vasa ship museum the natural history museum, and the riks museum are all musts.

The city hall is where the nobel prizes are awarded, and is gorgeous; and drottninggatan is a wonderful walk with historic building and beautiful views not far from the riksdag and king's castle.

If you can go a little farther north, Uppsala is worth a visit for its beautiful cathedral and the Anders Celsius museum; the countryside from Stockholm to Uppsala is beautiful, and worth the trainride or car.

No. I work with native detainees and have been to the rez a few times with my native friends. They all hate it there. Reading the files I have read, there is nothing but harassing eachother and drumming up drama to pass the time. Possibly one of the most xenophobic places you could be if you aren't native, and sometimes even then. The reservations i have been to are extremely depressing.

Actually I may have been wrong on that part.

My company wanted me to fly back on a business visa (M) and then change it on spots since I already have a residence permit, But the sources I found back then said it was illegal to enter China while being employed by a Chinese company. Now I only find links saying something about a 3 month rule for making money while on that type of visa.

I ended up waiting for a new proper visa instead of gambling on it though.

>Has anyone here gone through the quarantine? Specifically Shanghai?
No but I know several people who have.
Basically it's a bit random, different locations have had different rules. Some allowed delivery, most didn't. The staff didn't want to be carrying stuff up to rooms all the time, they'd need extra people just to relay meituan to rooms.
I've seen that some people had nice rooms and some had pretty average ones.
Family are allowed to drop off packages for you E.G. a guy I know got his xbox and lots of snacks delivered
Hot food wasn't allowed to be delivered though.

>How bad is the air pollution, really?
Depends on where you are, some are bad, some are ok.
There aren't really any urban areas that are totally fine but some places are fine most of the time.

Do something that'd be difficult to do without the program. For example, my last year in college I did an abroad program in Indonesia to do field research on orangutans and other endangered species. Went to remote jungles of Borneo and a ton of other awesome places. My major has nothing to do with any of that, I just wanted to do it.

As much as I want to, I'll probably never get to do that again though because of how much planning and research that goes into it. Best decision I ever made. You can do go to Europe and stuff like that easily at any time, and on a better budget. Pick something you won't ever get to do again.

I'm from Minsk. It's safe and even if you'll get caught your passport will save you on the spot.

All you need to know is to stay away from central streets on Saturdays and Sundays to avoid tear gas and rubber bullets.

But If I were you I'd go to Berlin.

>>1875748
>If you cannot speak German, you cannot conduct business in Germany
This does not apply to Berlin. Here everybody has a grasp of the English language and in some trendier, artsier districts people talk English exclusively
>>
I don´t think that you need to speak German to work in Germany. I know enough foreigners who work here without any German skills that would exceed A1. Especially in IT. And especially Berlin is somehow known for becoming more and more "international", what among others issues leads to English being the standard language. I don´t want to say that everyone speaks English on the streets there. But at least the majority can do so if you adress them in English. And in business environment everyone should be fine with English.

What might kill you in Berlin is the prices for apartments when you dont want to live in one of the poor ass shithole areas there (they do exist, but even there it might be costy).

Obviously, life in Berlin and in Minsk must be very different when you keep in mind what kind of politicians rule these cities. I can tell so without ever having been to Minsk.

Thanks, i would like to go to belaurs becuase my girl has place there, and its cheap so ill save alot on money. and get spend time with her. Berlin will always be there.

>>1877014
Thank you this is very insightful ! I've had multiple interviews with radstad companies, and they said me not speaking german is bad, but not being physically there is the problem. And many other interviewers said same thing. So i decided to just go there, and apply to work from there. Fingers crossed, but it increases my chances significantly.

And toronto's rent is ridiculously higher than berlin, london or paris. So its worth it and much cheaper for me

i used it in japan (several cities), amsterdam, brussels, and norway. it worked out well every time. sometimes i had a whole apartment, or studio apartment; a couple times i was in a place that shared a bathroom with other travelers. just read the descriptions about the places. i don't really think you can get kicked out unless you went completely apeshit. but the description of the place and the owner, plus the reviews, should give you a good sense of what you're getting into. i will say that a time or two i've been stuck outside the place for like half an hour because the check-in instructions were botched. that pissed me off. but in my experience, it's so much cheaper than a hotel that it's all i use.

Yup. It was great. Seoul and Busan were okay, but that small coastal towns and mountain towns were the fucking best. Some of the my favorite memories travelling are in Korea, but I'm a huge fan of hiking and nature-oriented trips. If that's not your thing Korea still has a lot to offer in terms of nightlife, entertainment, shopping, whatever. Pretty nice beaches too.

covid-obsessed currently?

I'm from England and we are mostly very pathetic and scared of covid, strong support for lockdown measures etc. Some of my friends still won't leave the house since march, srs.

I'm leaving the country for most of winter. Where in the world is most chilled rn and has the most normal way of life? Chances are we won't be hearing about those places in the news because it's all about panicked locations, but I bet some countries dgaf. Where?

Depends on your budget but I think playa del carmen is as good as it gets down here. My expectations from Mexico are very low right now, it doesnt feel like a good long term place and its not my thing/habitat. Too hot, too touristy, too much crime or fear of crime plus endless ripoffs and poor quality. Tacos are extremely overrated, they're horrible.
>>
On a second thought, avoid Playa d Carmen, this place is full of Jews, expect to get fleeced on airbnbs, hotels, shops, money exchanges and everywhere they put their hands on. I'm booking the next flight out of here once my airbnb rental is done.

It's hard to get from one end to the other without transferring in Miami (the worst airport in the world). I tried to go from Belize to St Lucia and finally found a route through Puerto Rico, but it wasn't worth the hassle.

Most places are still restricted, but I'd recommend San Pedro (Ambergris Caye) in Belize. Should be open by the end of next month. It's basically an island town and most people drive around in golf carts. The town is funky and groovy. Some nice resorts just out of town and they supply golf carts. Caribbean (spiny) lobster dishes in every restaurant. The tourists are all blissed out and friendly. The town has a lot to offer and you can escape back to your beach resort at the end of the day. Gotta fly into Belize City and then a short flight to San Pedro.

On many of the other islands you can start to feel a bit trapped at the resort because it can be unsafe to go exploring.

Armenia has been preparing for this for thirty years, and in a time of political uprising and instability the highly unpopular Azeri government probably won't take a risky action without being sure they'll be secure against their own people.

It'll probably die down almost immediately like in 2016
