On living in Omaha

Omaha is the largest city in the US state of Nebraska. It is on the Missouri River border with Iowa, along US Interstates 29 and 80.

Omaha has some unusual traits, as it has the highest number of millionaires per capita in the nation, and is also home to billionaire Warren Buffett, one of the world's richest and most famous investors. Conversely, it also has one of the highest rates of African Americans living under the poverty line. It is still quite racially divided, with the affluent west side and Midtown being predominantly white, the south side Latino, and the northeast side African American.

Residents are universally friendly and polite, and Omaha has a well-deserved reputation for hospitality.
