A small European city linked by fast rail to others. Nowhere isolated.

Oxford has about 150k people, for instance. For better weather, somewhere like Segovia (which is much smaller, but still an hour by train from Madrid).
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov
