Kurtistown is getting overwelmed with crime and drug rates. Not to mention the tention with N korea as well. Some locals are nice. The general population are not well educated. The weather is generally rainy but we do have our sunny days. It is a green rainforest.

Quiet bedroom community where you know everyone and everyone knows you. It would be nice if the post office would stay open past 2 pm and on Saturday. It's a safe little town.
