This city is a beautiful place to live. Because coming from Liberia to Houston Texans is was problems everywhere in Houston. So when my family to me about Fargo Nd I decided to move here and so far everything is fine. The best thing about it is my daughter school, she tells me every day the school and her teacher are the best and friends on the bus are so beautiful.
