I knew that San Juan would not be able to compare to the quality of life I had in Los Angeles. I don't think I realized just how much worse it would be.
Hurricanes, Power Outages, Earthquakes, and then being trapped on an island so you can't easily escape by driving off.

One of the benefits of living in such a low ranked city for more than four years, and counting, is that pretty much any other international city is a step-up. Not being able to easily drive for a weekend in another quality city, plus the quarantine, only adds to the claustrophobia.
Basically, if I can make it here, I can pretty much be more comfortable anywhere else.
One of the extra criteria you don't see on this list is the availability of Asian Restaurants, which are my preferred restaurant types.
My family's future will most likely be in various cities throughout the world, so this gives me motivation to travel these top tier cities to find my favorite. Puerto Rico will most likely be the closest connection I will have to the United States for the rest of my life.
And as long as Puerto Rico remains my "home base" and the tax savings justify it, I'll be all the more motivated to spend less time here, and visiting the top ranked cities of the world.
