    1) I love most of the food from Russia, and even some great Uzbek, Korean and Italian places over here and the diverse geography of my country.

    2) How expensive it is to travel within Russia.

    Your turn)

    Seoul

    Positives

    1. Korean women. So many of them are gorgeous and they’re not as conservative and prudish as they would like you to believe

    2. The relative safety in terms of violent crime. As a guy, I feel very safe here. I don’t have to worry much about getting shot or stabbed.

    3. Well-developed bike trails all over the country

    Negatives

    1. People here drive like shit and are reckless. It’s unlikely I will get stabbed by a dude trying to rob me but I may get run over by a guy looking at his phone while speeding down a crowded alley.

    2. The threat of North Korea. I think it’s very unlikely war will erupt, but it still doesn’t feel good knowing that I live in range of their artillery.

    Good or bad depending on how you look at it

    1. People eat weird shit like octopus that are still alive

    I live in Vancouver.

    Like:
    - Great climate overall
    - Beautiful outdoor environment
    - Good food all around
    - Economy is decent compared to rest of Canada

    Dislike:
    - Extremely expensive real estate prices
    - Too many recent Chinese immigrants, related to high housing prices
    - Asian fucking drivers, probably gonna kill me one day
    - Some really sad areas with heavy concentration of homeless and drug addicts

    Sydney. The harbour is nice. The rest of the city is a sprawling mess of people and it just feels dirty. I would rather be back in Melbourne or back home in Wellington. Fuck this place.

    Small town, fresh air, clean water. Easy access to nature, mountain to sea and forest in between. One of the best places to live on earth imo.

    No negatives really worth mentioning, they dont affect me.

    Yup, pretty much nailed it. I like also being a 5 minute walk to the beach/shore. Your dislikes are bang on.

    Pros: green and lush, temperate climate. Mountains and oceans, rivers, islands. Leprechauns, unicorns.

    Cons: Traffic. Too many gray days for many people; clouds, drizzle. Liberals. Bad karma. Ghosts.

    Good : nice weather , good food , if you a are a tourist you will find our country to be very cheap and with good landscapes.
    The few people that are nice , are actually very nice, caring and very brave and our police is quite good.
    We did used to own half the World and our language is the official and original Portuguese, its quite hard and complicated to learn but its also beautifull and somewhat poetic&romantic.
    When compared to other countries, we have very limited infrastructures, resources and government support, yet we manage to develop great athletes and inteligent minds.
    Also, we are the current European football Champions !! :D .. and i lost my voice for 2 days because of it !

    Bad : A corrupt mentality and a connections based way of being and thinking is deeply set in our society. Most people are just too dumb, ignorant, unaware and simply corrupt, much like the abundance of shallow women.
    Our political, judicial and finantial system absolutly fkin sucks and people are either to dumb to realize it, too chickenshit to do anything about it or simply work too damn hard for a pos wage while our taxes are incredibly high considering our average wages.
    I better stop here before i get depressed .... carry on please ...
