    Very pleasant visit there in October 2007. Virtually worry free from crime. People are very friendly. The city is absolutely gorgeous…I loved the family oriented atmosphere; to say nothing of cultural activities..My son lives there and they recently had a baby and that s the reason I was there. If I were young again I would seriously consider living there so that I could enjoy the many lovely parks, the delicious food, fresh vegables and fruit…..I almost hated to return to America with it s out of control crime..
