I´m not so sure my old hometown is the city i remember.
It is easy to think of it as full of opportunity.
It is even easier to have a romantic view of clubs, alternative people and rock since that is how it was.
Now, most of these “alternatives” have become preachy fanatics with a pet cause repeated over and over ad nauceum on Facebook.
Only a very few of my old friends mean diddly squat to me and that is obviously mutual.
I also know that where i live now i will have non of that and make no friends.
Even the “biggest” city here feels like a rural, closed, Bible belt small town.
My old town feels like a gray, poor, lost community playing city, all the old clubs replaced by stores selling cheap “fashion”. I might be wrong about that since i´m pretty much a tourist there now.
Problem is, i dont know of an alternative.
A place that is living and urban with a rich nightlife and who promises at least some possabilites.
A place where every nigh light hides a secret, a dream.
Should i even stay in the country?
