Houston is ranked number 1 in foreign tonnage, but anyways Houston has strong ties with these cities because of oil and trade. We don't have the largest Nigerian population in the country for nothing....

So they have strong oil and trade ties...but I'm curious as to exactly what these ties are? Do they do business, do they affect the daily lives of Texans, Nigerians, etc?

I think you're digging up whatever you could find. Just my opinion.

Also just because Houston isn't a world city doesn't mean it's not a great place to live.
