If you were to visit Annapolis, you might see me walking downtown. More likely, you'd probably have to go to a bar and look into the darkest nether-reaches to find me. In any case, I make my home in Annapolis, and sometimes the wife even lets me visit!

Annapolis is one of the top two cities that I have had the opportunity of living in.
I have always been a young-looking bachelor (maybe because I never got married?).
To be precise in 1989 I joined the International Student Club of the Anne Arundel Community College. A genial move if what I wanted to do was to meet young persons of college age; the same age I was when I was dropped into "life" and expected to do "well" on my own.
There is no issue of me wanting to SHARE with young students the things that I already had learned.

[Bert]: another vote for Boulder!
[Sameer]: Tell me why is it called sister city of Lhasa (Tibet)?
Being a sister city means there is an agreement of some sort between the two cities to promote cultural exchange. Many cities around the world have one or more sister cites, see this list. Boulder has six, of which Lhasa is the best-known. However if you live in Boulder, the most noticeable sister city is probably Dushanbe, Tajikistan - iif only because they built a rather amazing teahouse in downtown Boulder, a great place to visit.
Lhasa's influence in Boulder is less obvious than Tajikistan. I do notice that Boulder seems to have a higher-than-usual Buddhist population. It's also apparently a popular choice among Nepalese immigrants in the US, perhaps because the Rocky Mountains are at least somewhat reminiscent of the mountains in Nepal. (Yes, I know that Nepal != Tibet, but they're neighbors at least; perhaps the Rocky Mountains appeal to Tibetans as well.) For whatever reason, Nepalese restaurants are at least as common as Indian restaurants here (Indian being the closest well-known comparison in terms of cuisine), and this is the only city I've lived in that had any Nepalese restaurants. I confess I still don't know that much about their culture, but the food is pretty good. I'm pretty sure there are at least a few Tibetan restaurants here too, but I confess I haven't tried them yet.
Or Catford, in South East London to those not familiar with the strange cross over between cockney and chav which is spoken in the region.
I call it strange, but then again I'm finding myself speaking like it more and more. Coming from near Reading, I used to speak in a mixture of Home Counties posh and Berkshire farmer, but now the strange London accent is infecting me. I even said Grinnige instead of Greenwich the other day. And where have my "T"s gone? I'm sure I haven't pronounced one in a while.
