    Why is it the wrong side, guys?. Naff parking . yes..

    Unless it is a one-way street, you're not supposed to park like that in Germany (and probably most other countries I know).

    It's not generally illegal in the UK, but even in situations where it is people ignore the laws anyway. 
    They are a real hazard when trying to drive out of a parking spot while unsighted (due to sitting on the "wrong" side of the car to see past other parked vehicles). 
    I often find myself having to avoid cars jutting out into the road or coming towards me diagonally in my lane, but people seem oblivious to the risk because they've always done it that way.  Smiley

    HAHA.... poor RC - but also poor Lars. We are kind of in the same neighborhoods 

    At least people do like me here and we have an excellent relationship. 

    Well, half of the neighborhood are my wife's patients, so I never had issues with anyone but I am pretty good in reading people and I "smell" them. Smiley Also many come to me (or my wife) to gossip about other neighbors and if they do that with us,  I am pretty sure that they are doing this about us as well, if you get my point.

    And actually - those connected houses (stapled shoe boxes) you are showing are probably around a Million Euro, right? My wife would say, it is just tasteless and this has nothing to do with money. And people in those houses are having that exact taste, enjoying a life so different from ours. Enjoying cars so different from ours. Enjoying everything so different from us - That's the entire issue!

    They are tasteless but also cheap. No, in my neighborhood one of these connected houses is around 400k, the more luxurious ones up to 600-700k EUR but not more. The most expensive thing in our neighborhood is the property ground.  The owner of the property next to us, it is just a field, asked 600 EUR per square meter. This is insane. Of course he couldn't sell for that much money but he tried. Real value is around 400 EUR, maybe 500 if someone badly wants it but never 600.

    400k seems to be very reasonable. I thought that the sqm is around 600 that's why I thought the houses are more expensive. But you are right, today they build houses on yards not much bigger than the house itself Smiley

    So tell us - where is the hook with Kansas? 

    As far as I know it is also the area where 500.000$ investment is enough for a EB-5 green card visa. So - houses cheap, investment not too bad - where is the hook?

    No hook. I have lived all over the world. I love it here the best. Awesome and safe place to raise kids in excellent public and private schools. Lakes are all over the place. Food and gas are cheap. As for the ocean I don't have to tell you how Miami ranks.  Seriously it is a fabulous place to live and own nice cars. There are no hillbillies or rednecks.  People are extremely friendly and I have never run into any racists while out with my wife. It does get a little warm in the summer but the winters lately have been mild and have not required snow tires in years. Feel free to look at other homes in the neighborhood. You can spend as much as you like or get an amazing place for $200k as well.  Kansas City itself has also been transformed in the last few years. Our Royals are world baseball champions with adsorbs class ball park and our sprint center auditorium sold more tickets last year than any other venue in the world except the Sydney opera house.

     As Apias points out if you take your Ruby slippers when you travel getting back is simple as saying there is no place like home three times and clicking your heels.

    You should take a look at the thousands of million dollar houses and speedboats on the lakes around here. I have a lake house in the Osarks two hours away (awesome roads to get there).  There are 1300 miles of shoreline at that lake alone.  Warning there are hillbillies there though. Colorful characters to say the least but they are friendly and helpful.  We can always drive or fly to the beaches.  I prefer Jamaica myself. 

    Anyway you can see why people have nice cars around here. Lots of money let


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    Kansas is basically like a US version of Bavaria, so... yes 

    I can't help it, I like very warm weather all year long and a nice beach as well maybe...

    You can do that 24/7 including watering your yard. Grocery stores and gas stations are open 24/7 every day of the year!

    I am even allowed to walk my dog anywhere without a leash.  She does not even have a dog license. Btw we only have license plates on the back of the car.   For some here this is enough to move to Kansas.  We even have quite a few people who don't believe in government and drive without license plates of any kind. Not a problem.
