Don't let Hollywood deceive you with Glossy pictures.
Not everywhere in the U.S is that beautiful.
They also have slums, poor and homeless people begging for alms.

Don't be fooled like thousands of other Nigerians.

Lol..

The way y'all complain abt how terrible the situation In Nigeria is, same goes to the average muricans...but but the US is far better and livable than Nigeria miles away...

All States are functioning in the US. Unlike Nigeria where only three states function...

It's very beautiful but they got few ghettos too mostly populated by n*ggas...

But over all the US is beautiful.

usa is nice but got ghettos mostly the big cities also got nice neighborhoods...more like a lekki and A.J city stuff in lagos. life is not as easy as people make it seem. u pay for everything you use/need and its an interest based economy..meaning if you do pay mtn 2300 monthly phone bill u could decide not to pay and stay a month off...in usa you get disconnected completely and you pay the bill plus interest to reconnect may be like 2700 naira. it is actually the head office of capitalism and expertism where an engineer only gets paid when there is contract and gets fired after contract. no running at a lose in the country. govt can pay, they sack without mercy and probably deceive you by giving you change as unemployment benefit. u literally live on credit card unless u decide to be stingy with spending which is unnigerian........u keep deceiving ur self life is advanced in usa but u dont afford what your colleagues in nigeria can WITHOUT gbese...finally ask urself this question...why do americans work two or three jobs including the so called RN's? my gee BILLS....hardly any nigerian works two jobs. i rest my case

Who do you expect to pay for what you used? You are looking for free stuff? Baseless argument.

Imagining somebody complaining because you are asked to pay to pack your car. You can as well carry it on your head and enter the shop.

Complaining for doing two jobs, at least they have one job let a lone two to do, how many do we have in Nigeria?

USA has 50 states!all are unique in their own ways


New York is just like Lagos, bad roads, lousy people, dirty streets! Don't mind the media, all they show you is Broadway, Manhatttan Times Square and Downtown NY, the main tourist attractions are there. Harlem! Hell No!

I also lived in Chicago for a bit. Awesome transport system I must say, just like London. Downtown Chicago is beautiful, only rich white people inhabit there. Westside is desolate, hungry and abandoned. Southside if full of blacks, most crimes happen there. Northside is safe and sane.

And if you want to raise children and live the american dream, move to the suburbs


Statue of Liberty, New York

Are you surprised by the way some of our people reasoned. You quote a very good example of an Hypocrite.

Re: What Is Life Like In United State Of America by nefertitiram: 11:10am On Nov 01, 2015
Some images of chicago, last Nov, this was the Magnificent Mile Christmas parade I was fortunate to bump into in downtown Chicago. Over 800,000 people came out for it, you can imagine the human traffic

Dunno bout that.
But Hispanics and blacks alike live in East Harlem, strange to see a Caucasian there though

@ejike...Have you ever lived in Harlem? ? if yes where precisely??..
Re: What Is Life Like In United State Of America by ejikeokei(m): 2:51pm On Nov 01, 2015
Not really , I have not been or lived in harlem.
Re: What Is Life Like In United State Of America by ejikeokei(m): 2:55pm On Nov 01, 2015
Thanks guy nerfertit for the wonderful pics of america. Honestly I believe we all are learning more about the united state of america because if u ask any little children or adult wher they will like to spend there entire life, they will tell u it is america. Guys keep the message rolling by educating those of us on how to position our self and what to expect when going to usa.

Dude, park anyhow in lagos because you are shopping. I would be surprised if lastma officials don't tow your car to their garage to extort you. To use Ikeja mall/shoprite in Ikeja, you have to pay to park. Yet I don't pay a dime when shopping in Walmart or any other shopping mall overseas.

There's no need to insult anyone on the thread, he just said his own and didnt say don't come to america.he also said Nigerians are not stingy and hardly work two jobs. Pls, let everyone come and say what they want, if one soldier is by the corner waiting to counter anyone who says anything negative, most people will not contribute for others to know the evrything about living in america.

America is like any other country, there are no fixed guaranteed results for people.
Anyone claiming that it is all streets of gold, or, all racist crime is foolish.

As with anywhere a few will become rich, some will live comfortably and many will suffer poverty.
