Where are we all from? Plus Where we have been
1 Attachment(s)
At Choupi's request and also as part of our ongoing learning processes. I have decided that we should pics from where we are from, and if someone has moved around like (some of us) then they can post places where they have or lived now.

This is not one of my own, but it's a good one of the city centre and the big bridge in Tromsø. I will have some more later.

Re: Where are we all from?
I never recognize the flags! Maybe each of us could say what country and city we're from, and later go adding photos.
I'm Argentine (Irish ancestors), born in Buenos Aires, lived 10 years in England, and now live in Patagonia, in Bariloche, land of lakes, ski and snowboard.

Thanks for the link Sportyspice! Hehe, at least I can practice some German!!!! ;) It sounds great where you're living. :p

Ok I know I've asked for this thread and I still haven't posted any pic! Don't worry they'll come! It's just that I need some time to find the good ones and my job today seems to be willing to keep me away from it so... :confused:But promised, I'll post some as soon as possible! ;)

Re: Where are we all from?
We did a similar thread to this over in David's Forum a few months ago, and it was a great success. I can't post photos now because, like Choupi, I'm at work and all my pics are on my home PC, but I'll try and find some nice ones of my tranquil corner of "little England" later on :) We're not far from London but it really is a world of cricket on the Village Green and country pubs here!

I live in Pottstown, Pennsylvania USA. It's very close to Philadelphia. I've lived in Douglassville, but that's pretty much the same as Pottstown. The population is about 22,000. It's nice because you are close the rural areas and close to the city as well. I'm attaching 2 pics- showing both the city and the woods......

Re: Where are we all from?
Ok I'm back with a few links for you.

This one is for those who are interested in some tourism infos-sorry, the English version doesn't seem to be working...
That's the town I'm working in, very close to the German border. I've lived there for 6 years.

This one is for those who, like me!, fall back into childhood in front of all those Christmas lights! It's been taken this year, so that's how our streets look like today! :p

Promised, the pics are coming soon! ;)

Well it took some time but here they are! :D

Those are pics of Sarreguemines, the town I'm working in and where I've lived for 6 years. 25 000 inhabitants. Always in action and animation! I shall find some pics of our famous "Balla Balla" celebrations! It's for the Carnival! But those first ones are more traditional...Consider those to be the beginning of a series of illustrated reports! ;)

Re: Where are we all from?
Just a photo of the view from my bedroom :D thought it would be nice to show you what kind of area i live in, instead of posting local monuments:

Re: Where are we all from?
Hey Joeb, sounds great! Very nice neighbourhood I should say! Well I'd love to post the same kind of pics here but right now, I don't have any! :confused: I'm working on it and as soon as I have some I'll post them, OK? ;)

Choupi 12-06-2004 05:58 PM

Re: Where are we all from?
Taysbest, what you take for a hotel is a restaurant in fact! A very good and famous one! We send some of our students there to train. Oh I've forgotten to tell I'm working in a professional highschool which trains future chefs and pastrycookers! Hehe... :D
