Someone should know about their basic needs for everyday life, housing costs, and how much is their food budgets, employment, quality of life in the place they are moving in, the cost of living, and the features of the neighborhood. They should also know the people around them so that they can get along well.

Moving here is a great decision. Despite the pollution and traffic, this city is great. The place is not very attractive but the story of people lives are. I said that because I am one of the people who believes that looks can be deceiving, the outer look of this city is, honestly, not good but the people are. The people in here are kind, warm and friendly, they have beautiful stories.
