Day 11

One of my first and now very dearest friends in Sydney, Kristin and her gorgeous family are returning back to the USA after 3 years in Sydney.  I'm devastated.  I'll miss her so much.

So today sadly, her destination....Charlotte, North Carolina

Charlotte is the capital of North Carolina and is the 18th largest city in the states with a population est at 700,000.  Residents of Charlotte are known as "Charlotteans" and is nicknamed the Queen City or the Hornets Nest.  It has a lovely climate and sits halfway between the Appalachian Mountians and the Atlantic Ocean, and between Washington DC and Atlanta (their home before Sydney).
Charlotte has won many awards for it's liveability, and according to Forbes magazine has a massively undervalued real estate market.  It'c considered one of the best places to live in the US.  Charlotte has also become one of the major hubs in the States for financial services. 
Sounds like a fabulous place to be shifting to.  And visiting!
