What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?
Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.
As trivial as this sounds, (for all you women relocating), I would have brought a good supply of salon shampoo and conditioner. It's very hard to find, and also 3 times the price. Also, I would have brought more sweaters! It can get very chilly this time of year, ecpecially at night. Lastly, I would have brought a sears catalogue, and left another copy at home with someone, so that when I wanted to order someting, I could just e-mail the item # and have them send it to me.
