EVERYTHING IS PRETTY SAFE. ALMOST EVERYONE IS FRIENDLY, NOT ALL OF THEM THOUGH. THE TRAFFIC IS OK. THE WEATHER IS PRETTY COLD COMPARED TO OTHER PLACES. IT'S NICE AND COOL RIGHT NOW WHICH IS SUPER COMFORTABLE

IT DOESN'T HAVE THAT MUCH PLACE TO GO. IT'S KINDA BORING COMPARED TO BIG CITIES. I THINK THAT IS WHY IT'S PRETTY QUIET AND NICE AND SAFE. IT'S NOT COMPLICATED COMPARED TO BIG CITIES. THAT IS A REASON WHY I LOVE BELLINGHAM
