Gosh, it's really beautiful, too. I would love that hanging on a wall in my home!

Kind of reminds me of those "magic eye" pictures...

Maybe if you squint just right, it'll spell Chambodia?

I just stumbled upon this link again looking at some other things and thought I would re-post the pictures, so they show up in the thread up in the thread.

This really is interesting. It shows Clarkston, Gwinnett, and North Dekalb/Buford Hwy is attracting immigrants quite well.

One thing I noticed comparing ourselves to other cities is we really haven't been attracting many Europeans that well, comparatively. There are certainly pockets and some Eastern European pockets in Gwinnett, but overall there aren't that many.

Wow, I always heard that the chicken processing plants up near Gainesville relied on Mexican labor, but that bright red spot in the middle of nowhere certainly proves it!

Definitely!

Even in the lighter areas, like North Athens, there are alot of warehouses and factories. They seem to gravitate towards those areas and often build their own communities/town centers in a way many people don't even realize they are there as much at first.
