A GAME - Where would you rather live?

This is a game I found on another forum that I think will be fun to play.

One person posts two cities. The next person then answers that question, giving an explanation as to why, and then posts the next question.

For example:
Person posts: NYC or LA?
Next person: LA because it has better weather. Delhi or Mumbai?

So let's do this!

First question: Chicago or San Francisco?

Chicago.
SF is beautiful but too expensive. Plus too many Desis. Good to visit in Winter.

Houston, TX or Nashville, TN

They are real cities. Timbuktu is in Mali 🇲🇱
Jhumru Talaiya is in Jharkhand.
I would actually choose jhumru talaiya. Lot of Vividh bharati memories associated with it.
Prayag Raj or Varanasi

Both are also Hindu holy places. Varanasi is a popular place to die though. Belief is that dying there brings you moksha.

Most of UP and Bihar is a popular place to die, whether they choose it or not.

London or Paris? Thats a close one. I would think London would be easier for desis, given it's large desi crowd and history.

Bangalore or Cancun? Cancun, obviously! Bangalore - just one word - traffic!!

Dallas or Cincinnati?
