I can only say that Brazil is NOT boring!

Well, some places here can be boring sometimes...

I don't agree with Germany. it's capital (Berlin) is one of the most exciting cities and Hamburg is very vibrant, too. (same goes for Dusseldorf, Cologne etc.)

Any country without a dense city over 3 million people (metro) and with very low population density overall, while also being safe from war and conflict. So, baltic states, much of Scandinavia, maybe Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, Lichtenstein, etc.

What the flip???

Deep history? You do realize we've only been a country for (let me check my watch) about two hundred years now. I may not have ever used this smiley, but this post deserves it...!!!

Come April your world will probably become a lot less boring. 2am feedings, diaper rash, trips to the baby doctor, postpartum depression. Think of all the non-boring stuff you get to look forward to...in the USA.

It depends on where you live. There's NYC, SF, Chicago, LA, and Boston, but the US is quite big. In between is a lot of suburbia where the houses and neighborhoods look very identical, where most of the shops and restaurants are big chains, where no one walks around because they have to drive to get anywhere.

You do know people don't have to be urban and anti-automobile to have culture and variety right?

There are many car-driving or even suburban folk who have history, tradition, art, their own style, etc. Chicago, as one example, I think has some pretty historic/old suburbs as does NYC. Plus a car itself can be a form of unique expression for some people. Some of the least generic people I knew had to drive cars because they lived in the country.
