ok now, say someone asked you to name your favorite Brazilian city out of the top 3 most populated

Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and Salvador...the latter being the 3rd most populated.

do you think you would say "Salvador is the best no question?"

what about China, not in terms of population but in terms of popularity...most people KNOW Beijing and Shanghai, so do you think they would pick say Chengdu or Chongqing over them?


same way with chicago, no one really cares about the 3rd city...so give it a rest

I don't hear anything about the 2nd largest cities in Argentina or France, so from that angle doesn't that mean that no one cares about LA??

What about Miami? It's metro area is 7th, so it's right up there on global importance/recognition as Wuhan, China and Pune, India?

i have to agree. It sucks that we got a DC basher and a Chicago booster simultaneously

I am not peeved! I am amused at how you go around bashing cities like Godzilla and then as soon as someone says anything about Chicago, you curl up into the fetal position and suck your thumb. BTW - I did not respond to your drivel about DC because I thought you were probably high!

It's hard to go anywhere downtown these days without running into a European family clutching 10 shopping bags. So clearly Chicago has managed to get a dot on the map in some of the atlases in Europe.

Right. That goes without saying, which is why it wasn't said.

The point is that even though being the third city automatically shrouds the city in irrelevancy, an awful lot of europeans are stumbling across it these days.
