    What are the OK places/nasty areas? Ty in advance

    I thought it was just stereotypes before I met them, I don't like judging people. But they're some of the rudest people I've met definitely avoid :lol:

    Well I won't be earning billions that's for sure
    Basically, since Canary Wharf and its surrounding areas have been significantly redeveloped, you just need to stay away from the "old" parts of areas like Bow, Bethnal Green, Stepney, Whitechapel etc. You should look for recent developments!

    When I was at uni, I rented a flat in St. John's Wood, purely because I didn't want exposure to any "instability".

    At the end of the day, it all depends on your budget and the kind of people you want to live around

    Heh

    Greenwich is across the river so do you usually walk through the tunnel even at night?

    Do most people "go out" in the centre then? What's a good area if you go out often and don't want a long night commute?
    I've never actually walked it on my own, because I never went there on my own, but with housemates, yeah, we've walked the underground tunnel at all hours. It seems fine.

    I don't really know what most people do -- there are people everywhere And you're going to have a long commute wherever you go, unless you just jump in an uber as I saw someone suggest. Sorry for a bit of a non-answer but really you'll end up going out everywhere over time.

    How can you ask this question? Plenty of beautiful green spaces in the capital.

    I'm going at the start of December when it will probably be freezing :eek:

    Not decided on an area to live in yet but I can afford something pretty decent

    What should I know?
    There is a lot less freedom of speech in London than elsewhere,

    1) You look Sino from your pic
    2) You profess Christ
    3) Sino Christians usually are Texan American
    4) In your thread "Ya'll go church?" Ya'll seemed deliberately 'Americana'.
    5) I always thought TSR was a US site anyway.
    6) Why wouldnt you know of churches in Lon/UK if a Londoner?

    huh? huh??

    What's being 'chinese' looking got to do with America?
    Also I'm an Arab Italian/Christian and I follow an oriental orthodox branch of Christianity(Coptic christianity). So there's no such thing as someone living in Britain who is a Christian? What nonsense.
    I've always used those words in my thread,it's catchy.
    I do know many churches but I wanted to find out which particular ones people attend and what it's like/what they do there.
    TSR is a British site? How could you not know that or you're probably just trolling

    What's being 'chinese' looking got to do with America? No you've missed my point Chinese Christians are mostly from USA/TX
    So there's no such thing as someone living in Britain who is a Christian? What nonsense. I would agree, I think Chinese Christians are rare in Britain though.
    I've always used those words in my thread,it's catchy. Oh it is a deliberation then?
    ..you're probably just trolling I'm only 'trolling' as much as I've been misunderstood.

    I've mentioned many times on this website that I'm part Arab (levant) and part Swiss Italian. So I don't know why you keep bringing up Chinese Christians but fair to say I don't know any Chinese Christians.

    I didn't realise I wasn't allowed to use those words.

    Also it's pretty obvious this site is a UK one.

    You might have mentioned your heritage before but why would I know? my account is only a few months, if that. I explained that I thought you looked Sino [perhaps just the angle you're at to the camera (but ethnic still)] and learned that you profess Christ in your thread - thats how 'Chinese Christians' developed into the conversation. At least we've both concluded that Chinese Christians are rare in the UK at least so I thought based upon my earlier misconception that you may be Chinese American thats all.
