Jan 8th 2013 5:13PM I often find myself viewing and judging cities based on stereotypes, so I found your article refreshing and guiding. So much of a traveler's experience depends a frame of mind and an eagerness for learning.

There are redeeming qualities to be found in every location, if it needs to be redeemed. I have visited each of the spots touched upon by you and, based on your insight, I plan to give each of those locations a second chance at redemption.
