    Seeing as this is the community forum for all of FF, it would be nice to see where people who post here are located. If you can, why not provide a picture or a map of your surroundings.

    I'm posting this from [link=http://www.uppsalatourism.se/Images/TouristSights/udkbrb.jpg]Uppsala, Sweden[/link]

    Hi I'm Terry and I'm from [link=http://maps.google.com/maps?oi=map&q=Mckees+Rocks,+PA]McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania[/link]. It's a little outside of Pittsburgh. We're a small railroad town.

    [link=http://www.explorestlouis.com/]St. Louis, MO here[/link]. We have a big Arch and I think three rivers meet really near my home (the Missouri, Mississippi, and Des Peres). Our urban park, Forrest Park, built for the 1904 World's Fair, is 500 acres larger than Central Park in NY. Yeah I did the tour guide thing this summer on [link=http://www.segway.com/]Segways[/link]. I could tell you more than you ever wanted to know about the Park here :p

    I'm posting from [link=http://www.brodyaga.ru/images%203p/koeln%203.jpg]Cologne[/link]. If you follow the link you can see our most famous sign, the cathedral of Cologne ("Kölner Dom"), and a part of the Rhine. There must be a good website about Cologne, but sadly I haven't found it yet. :( But if I find a good one someday, I'll let you know. ;)

    Please excuse my poor American geography skills, but where is Cologne exactly?

    I'm living in [link=http://www.stuckonscotland.co.uk/pictures/edinburgh/edinburgh_01.jpg]Edinburgh[/link] now, although I'm originally from [link=http://www.arrakeen.ch/europe/205%20%20Manchester.JPG]Manchester[/link]. The Manchester pic is slightly random. In Edinburgh you have the obvious focus point of the castle, but there's nowhere really like that in Manchester. I could maybe find a pic of Old Trafford football ground if you guys want :D

    *sigh* I wish I could go and visit Edinburgh... Not in winter, though, I'm scared of dark places :p

    Jedi_Dajuan, Cologne is in Germany ;)

    And I'm posting from [link=http://www.bonjourtoulouse.com/]Toulouse, France[/link]. A 2000-year-old city built on the river Garonne, with an interesting historical and architectural heritage which do not prevent Toulouse from being an active city, open to research and new technologies.
    ... If only my parents didn't live in here, it'd be close to heaven :p

    [link=http://maps.google.com/maps?oi=map&q=Pueblo,+CO]Pueblo Colorado [/link]

    its a not so small, not so large place south of denver and colorado springs. it used to be a major city out west. it was the steel and iron capital. now its a boring place to live unless oyu like to party a lot. we are kind of a tourist stop over for those going north and west to ski. it can have its good points, but i really want to get out.

    Twinnie, if you are afraid of dark places you really need to hurry with going to Sweden, before it turns really cold and dark for a couple of months.

    I'm from the city of [link=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a9/2507van.jpg]Vancouver[/link], on Canada's Pacific coast.

    NaomiOrganaSolo, I just learned from [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vancouver,_BC#Sister_cities]here[/link] that Edinburgh is a sister city of Vancouver. I'm not really sure what that means, but it's probably better than being mortal enemies. ;)

    And please take into consideration that some of us live in places where the culture and life-styles are so much different it'd be nice to learn a li'l bit about your town ;)

    Plus with a name like that, it must have some historical interest... *geek mode_ON*
