In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

This is a diverse and accepting area. I was not aware of the extent and presence of Christian groups, facilities and missionary work.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

Relief workers, academia, medicine and tourism/hospitality are four key areas.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

This is a very laid back place overall. People who are working still work hard but enjoy the social aspects available.
