Sad to say I'm from NYC. The good thing about it is nothing, and I cannot wait to move somewhere else. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

EllenApr 12, 2021, 7:06 PM

Oxford makes me think of books and intellect! Vancouver is beautiful, Iโ€™m dying to go. There are too many breathtaking spots there. Iโ€™ve seen photos and itโ€™s absolutely on top of the list for me. Iโ€™ve heard really good things about Colorado, Iโ€™m pretty sure my Advertising prof was obsessed with an ad agency based there โ€“ maybe Iโ€™m wrong it was a while ago-- but it sounds like a really well-balanced and healthy place to live. Marcos, Iโ€™m surprised to hear youโ€™re not pleased with NYC. Itโ€™s such a grand place haha. Everything is so massive. I thought I knew epic after becoming familiar with Toronto, but NYC so larger than life. At least that was my experience when I went there.

LimarcApr 12, 2021, 7:42 PM

Wait til you see Tokyo Ellen ๐Ÿ˜„

EllenApr 12, 2021, 8:32 PM

So next level. I want to go. The tech is probably surreal, especially on the backdrop of the historical elements. I also heard there are really unique vending machines there haha

HangApr 12, 2021, 8:33 PM

yes like so if you're lucky you will meet nice Japanese people who just buy you water at the airport because you have no ideas how the machines work LOL

EllenApr 12, 2021, 8:34 PM

hahaha good to know

Limarc are suntory boss coffee vending machines all over Tokyo? I remember seeing a lot of those in Kumamoto and liked that phrase and the logo

LimarcApr 12, 2021, 8:40 PM

Pretty much every machine that has coffee yes. It's the most popular canned coffee brand

Haha technically I do, but Snowball lives with my mom, so itโ€™s pretty much her dog now. So for the meeting all I can offer is birds chirping. Thank you for the welcome! What city in Ukraine?

ArthurApr 13, 2021, 3:19 PM
