Montreal (yes, it's in Canada but Canadian cities are usually allowed).

It's an amazing city, but the winters are something else. The other thing is that while I can speak French, it's definitely nowhere near native-level so I'd feel that I'd be missing out on a lot in the beginning. That being said, I think if the right opportunity came by, I'd still be tempted to say yes.

We both know that's not what he meant here. Come now...

And yes I would call keeping statues of people up, honoring them, who much of the country despises, is certainly hung up on it's past.
If that's the case, then how is Charleston any different than the rest of the country?

Defending a plantation from people who would want to tear it down would be historical preservation. But a building and a statue are completely different scenarios.
Statues can be, and often are, historical structures.

Also, many people in the south look at it the same way. Like me.
I guess you didn't realize I was calling him out on his snug Northern superiority, or maybe you agree with him.

Portland, OR, I would like to live there, or, just outside of that city but would be too expensive for me and I probably be happier living in Sioux Falls, SD instead despite its harsh climate and surrounding landscape.
