If you could clone one element from another city you’ve visited — a building, a cultural institution, a common street food, etc. — and bring it back to your own hometown, what would it be? —http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/city-planners/
Uhh, frankly, there is very little that I would bring to my hometown that I would consider special and lovely because my hometown is a cesspool of misplaced prejudice, stupidity, and ignorance, and I see no reason to waste my time and effort on giving them something to tarnish and/or destroy. It isn’t worth it.
In their defense, the place is a little bit better off now than it was when I lived there. But only marginally. And there’s still so much that needs serious attention that it would be worthless to introduce things for them to throw away during the growth process.
