Yes, listen to SalParadise instead. He gave you a better perspective on Los Angeles than the one I did. LA is good if you are into show business and all that stuff. Photography too. Business - no way.

I've been to the States before, NYC which I really liked and I've spent some time in Toronto too.

Hey dude, stay where you are. There won't be anything for you here. I'm sorry all you Euro countries are about to go under, but that wave is headed here in the near future. It's total turmoil if you are looking for work. Better have a job waiting... good luck...

I would definitely do it the legal way so ye going to the embassy and sorting out the paper work is a must but I would be attending to such chores in the coming months..

As for the economy here in Europe - ye many of the Euro countries are headed towards catastrophe but not Malta - it has a very sound economy. Europe's economy barely has a twentieth in weight in my decision to move across the Atlantic. I also have a job lined up here by contract if I were to remain here after graduation. London (very similar to NYC in most aspects) has become over flooded with migrants that it lost most of its appeal to me.

I'm well informed about illegal migration problem, don't really wanna go in to that argument coz its not the objective of this thread. But I'll keep what I'm being told, in mind. Long Beach looks nice also, and I heard there's a strong Maltese community there. One thing's for sure - I obviously won't move to any country if I don't have the right financial and legal means of getting there.

Just to correct my point about London - its more the weather that puts me off rather than the migration because in actual fact I appreciate multi cultural cities more; thats why I find Toronto, NYC etc great cities too.
