Another thing I can say is that it is much cheaper than Europe, their financial status is equal to most of the people in Germany BUT it seems like they are much poorer in the USA...
But the people there are great!
Nightlife... Yeah, Partner's, always a good one... ;-) Or Rudy's Bar... :-)
What else? Mamoun's Falafel! It's really great...!!! Go there, tell them a story about all your tats and piercings and you'll get some ice tea for free... ;-)
I miss New Haven (and the people there) ;-)
