    The problem with SF is that the hippy part is only one part of SF. If you were to compare SF to another city in California, most will tell you that it is...different....

    There is this image that people seem to tag SF with. For starters, (very) Liberal, and many probably don't have a problem with being called that.

    Well, it's sure not even a Scooby Doo ghost town.

    San Francisco is a 4w3, it's a bunch of image conscious, PC liberal bastards. But 7w6 is acceptable, too. LA is not a 3w4, overall, it's a 7w6, just like I said, and just like most of California. The movie industry is a 3, though.

    What about Pittsburgh?

    Plains in Berlin? Where did you see plains? (am having a mental image of the empty prairie and tumbleweeds here, which doesn't really work with Germany)

    And you were probably only staying in the Prenzlauer Berg area, where all the hipsters live. Berlin is trendy but it's also very raw, at times dirty and down-to-earth, it's one of the poorest cities in Germany and the one with the highest unemployment (Berliners have the slogan, "Poor and sexy" for a reason).

    On the other hand it is vibrant, very accepting (if you want to dress like a goth, a hipster or like you just fell out of a tree, feel free), it has one of the best clubbing scenes in the world, an incredible history (it was the epicentre of 20th century history), a lot of depth and it feels cutting edge, that's why all the artists go there. I love that Berlin is so edgy and honest, the whole bandwidth of positive and negative human emotions is so out there (just look at Berlin's history and all the memorials reminding us of it, for example the remains of the Berlin Wall, the Holocaust memorial etc) In contrast a lot of Southern Germany is so pristine that it makes me want to spill something or spit on the pavement just to liven things up a bit. There you are also likely to meet the kind of Germans who tell off their neighbours for not hanging up their washing correctly.

    It surely does have one of the greatest range of emotions I've come across in a city. I pick up feelings very strongly from certain places/cities, and the feelings I had in that city were strange and disturbing. The weight of history, the shocking and thrilling things that have happened, the genuinely avant-garde spirit - Berlin is THE city on the artistic cutting edge today, apparently, as London and New York have been in the past. I was fascinated and bewildered by it in just a few days I spent there.

    Mind you, I also like central and southern Germany.

    Vancouver - maybe 1w9?

    West Coast Canadians (and I speak as one) can be very "THIS IS THE WAY YOU MUST DO THINGS", but in a PC, hippy, inclusive kind of way - if that makes the tiniest bit of sense - seems like 1w9 would fit best for that or maybe 9w1?

    Den Haag seemed very IXXP to me. So relaxed and laid back. I would go back there to live in a heartbeat.

    Historically at least, Detroit could be seen as a type 3 city(3w4?), mostly due to its status as a major industrial center.

    Oh I'd have plenty of fun with these people.
