That survey is meaningless, as it surveys mostly expats with some very broad questions. All the cities that the top list also happen to be the most boring.

I wish we did that. I caught a bad cold from a German tourist in Europe last month when he sneezed onto the breakfast buffet at the hotel. Ruined my entire vacation!

I thought you guys were smart. You put your houses on stilts for hundreds of years but couldn't think to perch a few generators on them?

Sheesh! Even we don't screw up that bad.
