Buffalo is a quiet, sleepy sort of town. But it's nice because it isn't over-crowded and there are plenty of places to find good food. It's not my favorite area in the world, but it's still a comfortable place to live! And I'm glad that we have a coffee-shop and a few boutiques in town too. I was really excited when we finally got a Cinnabon and a Taco Bell built this year! This will be a nice place to come back to when I come home on breaks from college.
