Putting a face to so many special things | Why we (still) love Chico

Facial recognition. When in public spaces, odds are high that someone will recognize me or I will recognize them. We may just wave or perhaps make small talk. This high level of visual personal familiarity with random people in a City is quite rare.

Eye contact. Chico residents are inclined to make eye contact, even with strangers, as they pass each other while walking, seated at a restaurant or even in a car while waiting for a traffic light to turn green.

Heat after sundown. It may sound odd, but it is a wonderful feeling; warmth from the re-radiation of heat from the earth, asphalt and concrete. The heat gathered during the day from solar radiation.
