There's always an unstated assumption in these articles that choosing to live on the cheap in some third world dump is intellectual and exotic, while choosing to live on the cheap in a redneck dump in the US, just means you're poor.

There is also often an assumption by people that third world country must be a dump, or that small town living in the US requires being in a dump.
