I agree ;-). I had the same thought initially but then started thinking
that Hiroshima couldn't possibly as small as Maastricht ...

I do think we have to be careful with our words, as the IAOC might decide
to go to Minneapolis again if we tell them that we like smaller cities ;-).

Words like secondary cities within a particular region/country might be more
what we were looking for.

On the hand, I personally like the variation of going to many different
types of venues and locations: if I have to travel for work, I can as well
see something different each time even if it costs me some extra (personal)
travel time.
