Sorry I'm going off-topic with my post, and have never been to the States, but I'd like to ask what is wrong with small towns and the residents of them? I'm originally from a midsized town Lappeenranta (59 000 residents) in South-Eastern Finland, and although I have lived in thirteen different towns/cities in Finland since I moved away from there, I still prefer Lappeenranta. And, though e.g. my littlebrother and his girlfriend have lived their whole lives there, I still can't see them being close-minded bc of it. I love the atmosphere of small/midsized towns of Finland, they are so homey compared to Finland's capital area with too many tall buildings and noisy traffic. * I just wish I could someday find work in Lappeenranta, so I could live the rest of my life there - or indeed in some of its neighbour villages...Pure Narcotic said:I lived in Baton Rouge for 3 years Gimpy. I just had the feeling that these girls were so close minded and would be stuck in baton rouge their whole lives, never being able to broaden their horizons.
* Well, I bet you would think Finland's capital area with its four cities and one million citizens only a small town complex compared to the cities in the United States. But what the heck, for me Helsinki-Espoo-Vantaa-Kauniainen is a way too big still. :wink:
