We pretty much agree on everything except those red hot dogs but I found myself a little lonely stateside but then again I didn't' have anyone with me my entire family was here, most of my neighbors kept to themselves and didn't' want to engage in conversation but then again I'm from ND.

Manila Bay was drastically changed from many garbages(polluted) into WOW. It is clean now and people make it "PASYALAN" or visit and they even swim. You gonna check it, it was totally changed.

No. Nothing has changed. The water is still full of bacteria - officials are warning people not to swim in the polluted water. It is good that they removed trash, but they have cleaned the beach every year for the last 5 or 6 years. First good storm and it will all be back. They make a start, but have a long way to go.

When my wife came to the USA we lived outside Los Angeles for 6 years and she liked it because it reminded her of home because she could walk places. We moved to NC last year out in the country. She at hated it at first and now she loves having her space with a big house.
