Big Cities According To Dave

Having posted the blog on no vacation for this year, I started looking back at to some of the places I have been too personally. I have been to some really big cities in my life...Here are some of my favorites:

Sao Paulo, Brazil 1984-1986
Average Population over 10 million.
Endless skyscrapers for miles. For Mega-cities, Sao Paulo is the one of the biggest cities that I have lived and worked in:

Seoul, Korea 1994-1995
Average Population 10.2 Million
Also Endless skyscrapers. For a Mega-City, I think it actually beats Sao Paulo, Brazil in population numbers. Cool city with lots of good...and bad memories.

New York City, New York
Born just north of this city
Again, endless skyscapers-but feels like like home...Gotta love Gotham.
Average Population 8 Million...Get outta here!

Those are the biggest cities I have ever been in...Here are some of my other favorite "Big Cities"..:

Dallas, Texas
Just East of Lubbock and a whole hell of a lot funner.

Honolulu, Hawaii
Just West of Dallas and a lot funner than anywhere in Texas.

New Orleans, Louisiana
Just South East of Dallas, and I can't remember what happened there. Ask Dannelly, he might know something.

Nuremberg, Germany
My home away from home in Europe, along with Frankfurt where PX and Petra live. Great food, great Gluvien, a great place to spent a wintery Christmas.

Osaka, Japan
Dad took me here when I was 7 years old. I have never forgotten Osakajo Castle to this day.

Rio De Janiero, Brazil
Pit stop city on the way home from Sao Paulo. Great beaches with greater sceenery.

Salzburg, Austria
Went here back in 1991. Beautiful city and home to Mozart, one of my favorite composers.

Seattle, Washington
Home of my cousin April and great seafood.

I would add Modesto, California, home to another one of my favorite peeps, but Modesto needs to grow up a little to be added to this blog on big cities...Sorry Scott and Betty!

And to Samantha Brown...

Don't worry Blondie...Stacy and I will catch up to you in the world one of these days........
