I live in Fuerth, Germany:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%BCrth

Fuerth is located next to the city of Nuernberg and it is a small "melting pot". As far as I know, our citizens origin from about 30 nations as well as 4 world religions are represented here and live peacefully together:
jewish, christian, islam, buddhism.

Fuerth is the most secure large town in the state of Bavaria (we have about 100.000 citizens).

Here you can see a typical scene of a normal day in Fuerth. The building with the tower is our city hall:

It is wonderful to live here. :smile:

The hard question to answer is "Where did you come from to this existence?" :shrug:

Howdy,

I am from Istanbul, as Buddhism the only religion which gets its interest in human mind, I feel very close to Buddhism. I am here to exchange the ideas and to learn more about the natural truths.

I'm from Pennsylvania (which, I guess, also makes me from the United States).

I was actually born in Dundee, Scotland but I've lived in Luton since the age of 3 and my mother was from London so I have a Cockney accent :jumping:

Born in Santa Monica, California. Have lived in southern California almost all my life. Much more crowded than it used to be. The town where I now reside had 6,000 residents when I moved here in the late sixties. Now has about a sixty thousand. I prefer small and quiet but I try to focus on the fact that at least we now have a really good library and more places to shop, making prices more competitive and making organic fruits and veg available. It is almost totally fundamentalist christian and very unaccepting of people who are different in any way. Which is challenging. Cost of living here is much lower than most of California, which is good. The weather is pretty good, though much hotter in summer now than in the past and much much dryer as well. When I came here we would get 30 inches of rain annually. Now, hardly 8. This valley used to be a farming mecca. Now it is all paved over in concrete. Everything changes. Was very very safe when I came here and I did not lock my doors until the mid eighties. Now it is crime ridden and scary. I would get a large dog except that I work hours that would leave him/her alone for way too long.

I'm from Spain, but living in England at the moment for four months. I still don't know if I want to stop here or continuing searching.

And I like to meet buddhist people here, I still don't know anybody.
