This week Fandango provocatively asks;
If money were no object and you could live anywhere in the world, where would you want to go and why?
Choosing where we live has to be viewed through a few considerations;
I am very comfortable in my own home, in the city I was born and uprooting myself at this age to live someplace else is not an appealing prospect.
I am familiar with my surroundings here, I know where to go if I want to buy something, watch a movie, or go just for a long drive with music blaring from my car speakers.
With the world economy in the state it is, money is tight everywhere, but living in Pakistan, life is not that expensive even now. If I compare prices in the USA to those in Pakistan, except the petrol/ gas prices, we still are way cheaper here. Our way of cooking is also such that we can eat more in less money.
The most important thing at my stage of life is social interaction with family and friends. And for all the C money in the world, I wouldn’t want to go and live in a place where my family isn’t around me or I cannot drop in a friend’s house for chitchat! This I think is a factor which would decide where I live.
