<<This is something that the California lady (sorry, this thread has gotten so long and off-topic I can't even remember her name! SORRY!!) needs to factor into her relocation information: regional foods that may not be available in other parts of the country. It's a quality of life issue, for cryin' out loud, one has to think about these things!>>I've been toying with the idea of moving out of the massively pricedSilicon Valley area myself (2 bedroom duet home, ie half a duplex,appraised at recent refi at $475K), and this is the stumbling block: little if any "ethnic community" in cheap places and very little Chinese community anywhere else but cities that are nearly asexpensive and that have worse weather (ie Seattle). My wife isChinese and I grew up in immigrant neighborhoods, and without the local Chinese supermarkets and malls, we'd be at a loss on where tobuy groceries :) Also, the sweet, greasy wannabe-Cantonese slime called Chinese foodin other parts of the country bears about as much resemblance to the real thing as Taco Bell does to actual Mexican food. (OK - I'll admit to being spoiled by living in Beijing and Shanghai, and having an aspiring Chinese gourmet chef as a wife, but still... :)
