Golden Triangle Reviews

My overall experience would have to be rated "it's okay". At the beginning of my childhood, I was scared to go because I was a little more well off than others in my neighborhood during that time. However, it is starting to change a little more each year. New people are moving in and new faces are starting to pop up all over the place. Current residents are selling their house and moving elsewhere. More school are being built to help the economic and choice of trade for children in the neighbourhood.
