You won't understand until you have visited those places. New York is beautiful. But it's the worst place compared to those places. New York is the Oshodi of America.

Right. New York city is overhyped, very expensive, overcrowded and congested to enjoy with vacation.

Memories.....Initially scary being it was my first time, was alone, no guide, just my phone and Google! Till a total stranger very kind woman put me through. I won't forget that route in along time. I can still remember the public address system on the train clearly...this is pinelawn your next stop is farmingdale then bethpage hicksville, Jamaica finally Penn station smiley I took that ride to and fro daily for 2weeks. Happily roamed the streets of Manhattan till evening then back to my host in long island. Moved on to Dallas but I still prefer N.Y. anytime smiley

Nice pix. Keep the pictures coming. I think you can do some investigative reporting like finding out how much handy men (plumbers, mechanics, electricians, security guards, mcdonalds, starbucks etc) make over there so that guys that want to go and hustle there will know how much they will likely earn. How much is earned per hour? Cost of accomodation for one room? Things like that. What do you think?

They earn quite decently as those jobs are always in demand.
Meanwhile you can look it up yourself on the net.

Okay thanks. Can you provide the link to educate everyone?

There's no link. Do a search online and you'll come up with something.


Eg, Google "how much do X earn in X country. Go to sites like payscale and do your research.
