well, if you spend a few years living outside of philly, you realize it's a nice city, but its no paradise. if i were to live in a large city on the east coast, it would have to be boston or manhattan. philly is home, but sometimes home sucks

Haha funny you say that, cause we've actually been looking for an extra roommate most of the season. Apparently an open bed in Breck isn't appealing during this economy, especially since a lot of people lost their jobs this season.

How are the Canadian woman as a whole. Stereotyping will be fine. Southern belle, northern *****, ski-bunnies, ...stuff like that.

Colorado is great. Breck was my favorite of the resorts on the 5 mountain pass. If you know where to look you can find powder there for days after it snows.

That wasn't the case at all. I didn't need the medicine even once, because everything was just so much cleaner. When I got back and was on the drive home from the airport I said, "Yep. Can totally tell I'm home." Since being back I'm very reliant on it, and after my experience with the midwest I just cough it up to ****** air quality around here.
Depends where you're at...Denver definitely suffers from some smog problems. Derived mostly from the geographic nature of the region (mountains) trapping stuff there--based on what I was told during the short time I was living out there.

Denver can be a little stuffy, but it seems to be a day to day thing, and if you go up the mountains, or out of Denver itself, the air is very nice.

Yeah, our white water rafting guide actually mentioned that, and how they've stopped all of the mining and such, in an effort to reduce the problems it was causing. I was only in Denver for a day, but it still seemed decent. In knowing pretty much just Philly city-wise I thought of it as a baby city.

Generally speaking, though, I was considerably distant from Denver.

Gotcha. It's a beautiful Province, my favourite in all of Canada.

The only Provinces I haven't been to are Saskatchewan and Winnipeg.

Pretty hard to visit the province of Winnipeg when it doesn't exist.

UGH. I'd live in Philly 11 times out of 10 over Boston. Manhattan and Brooklyn are nice places, though.
