Where are we from?

GWH has a thread at Gaudio's, and Lee at Guga's, and other players forum as well, so let's have one here. It would be interesting as Roger has a lot of fans from all over the world...

Show pics of your city, your region, your country...or maybe a view from your window!

I'll start. This is Bern, the capital of Switzerland. My home for the last 16 years.

view of the Old Town


Barenplatz, with the Federal Building in the background

bigger...


and the famous landmark of Bern, the Zytglogge (Clock Tower), portal to the Old Town


the Aare river encircles part of the Old Town, here shown with the Münster church. in the summertime many people swim or float in these clean waters...


i'll look for more pics later to share. Ok, your turn!

Hi, Val! How are you? Long time no see!

Yes, the Bellevue is right next to the Federal Building.

Re: Where are we from?

To find some pictures of your home city town village, I suggest to use a search engine (yahoo, google, msn, etc...) and type "pictures of (your city)". It could show some pictures. And also the official website of the tourism of your city could contain some nice pictures...

Hope this helps....

i've been to Philadelphia, but ages ago. dont recall much though but i remember seeing the Bell of Liberty, and climbing up those steps that Rocky did in that film! and i thought the train station was pretty impressive.
