Yeah. My long term plan is to move to Toronto. It's such a beautiful city. They have quite a variant in public transportation (though there street car, and subway need refurbishing), and I just love how so many people ride there bicicyles around the city. From the elderly, to the young, to buisness men and women. It's awesome to see.
An it felt so healthy to be there. The air, just felt, different. And the people were so, so nice and always so respectful. Even the homeless people were always friendly and respectful as well. Was such a change from the homeless people here or in chicago where there so AGGRESSIVE when they ask for money (at least in my encounters).
An the diversity is so beautiful to watch. Blacks, whites, asians, latinos, indians, native canadians, native americans and so on. If you just visited toronto for a day and you didn't know it was in canada you wouldn't be able to tell what country it was because of how diverse the population was.
Such a great, great city.
That's what cincinnati needs more of definitely. An this is not meant to be racist, because i'm black myself, but it just feels there's this big racial divide.
Don't go to over the rhine-that's where the black thugs live.
Don't go there-that's where black homeless people rome
Don't go there-tons of black people live there
SO MANY TIMES I HEARD THIS WHILE WALKING AT THE BANKS. SO MANY DAMN TIMES.
I feel there's a wall of perception of the people who live in the suburbs and the downtown area and i'm tired of it.
