Would you like me to be your neighbour?


I´d like you to show me a picture of your city and tell me something that convince me to choose that place.

The states I can choose between are:

  • Alberta (Canada).
  • District of Columbia .
  • Delaware .
  • Illinois
  • Indiana .
  • Iowa .
  • Kentucky .
  • Ohio .
  • California .
  • Colorado .
  • Nuevo México .
  • Utah .
  • Carolina del Norte .
  • Florida .
  • Louisiana .
  • Texas .
    You can live there…or not!! but if you know any of the states and you think that it has something appealing, please let me know!

Thanks for helping me ! :)

    Here are links to some of my albums from Alberta (although California will be hard to beat):




    Good luck whatever you decide!

    @emperornorton I don´t still know where I am going to work exactly (and if they are going to select me for the job). I just know the number of places in each state, but they don´t specify the cities or the schools.

    Delaware!! Una vez pasé ahí una noche por culpa de un vuelo cancelado! La pena es que no tienes Massachussets, que es el único estado que conozco, pero del que te puedo hablar muy bien. Ya nos contarás cómo va el proceso!! :)

    California or Colorado would be your best choices IMO both culturally and photographically speaking. ;)

    Here's the deal with California: Either they will send you to a college in or near one of the major metropolises -- in which case you will be near our cultural institutions -- or they will send you to one of the schools out in the country -- which will put you near our national parks.

    Of course California would be cool for the beaches and the mountains and the weather. Colorado is beautiful and has cool people, Denver and Boulder are cool cities. If you want to be on the east coast though, North Carolina has beautiful mountains and beaches, most of the bigger cities are cool (except for charlotte). NYC and Atlanta aren't too far.

    thanks @clickiemcpete, @emperornorton, @traaaart, your opinions are helping me a lot, really! @laviejasirena me estais convenciendo con California y eso que no me llamaba mucho la atención :)

    I'm not being impartial here, I spent almost the whole September driving around California. Being Spanish, I think the closest state to Spain, climatewise, is South California. If I had to choose a city to spend some time, I'd go to Santa Barbara, lovely colonial style city... it reminded me some places in Andalucia. I also love LA, although a lot of tourists don't. Going south, you got San Diego, a really surprising city. If you go North, then San Francisco and surroudings are the place! Also, you have all those national parks like Yosemite... they are amazing. In winter you can go skiing or snowboarding (Lake Tahoe). It's a big state and I like it a lot -just in case it wasn't clear :P

    Vete a California, paya! Lo pasarás bien.

    gracias @angelgcuartero! la verdad es que me estais pintando California fenomenal! casi me teneis convencida! :D

    I really like parts of California (San Francisco and Northern California), but I live in Colorado and love it dearly. Mountains, lakes, forests, sunshine, snow, skiing, hiking, beer, and lots of great people. Let me know if you take a job here and I'll help you find some great spots to spend time . . . :D

    @angelgcuartero, @mochilis, @valennano, @atria007, @grazie, @barakalofi, @rudemuinho, @mafiosa, @emperornorton, @laviejasirena, @clickiemcpete, @traaaart, @russheath I´ve finally chosen Colorado, because they are looking for teachers of English as a second language or Infant education teachers, and I have both degrees, so I think it will be easier that they choose me for the job. And there are also more positions.
    I have just registered the application. Now I only have to wait for the initial selection...Fingers crossed!!!!
