    Yeah, a little morbid, I guess. But please, everyone don't let that stop you.

    Born in London but now living in Cambridgeshire. My non British friends can never get over how much tea we drink, it's the only thing I miss when I am abroad although I did get a very nice cup of breakfast tea in a cafe in New York once.

    My country is smaller than Canada or USA , but we have different regions and costums. This city is big and stressful and the underground works very well. People say our underground is one of the best of the world.

    Historical centre is beautiful. Also we have a lot of museums. Although Prado museum is the most famous and important, i think Sorolla and romanticism museums are the most beautiful. Nana you would like to visit Sorolla museum.

    The most typical food is "madrilian cocido" , it is make with chickpeas , vegetables and meat. We use to meet 3 courses, first a soup, second the chickpeas and third the meat (pork, cow, red sausage...), for me it´s a heavy meet but very tasty. Now before to easter also it is typical the cod and torrijas ( bread soaked in milk and fried in oil with honey or sugar).

    And weather is dry, too hot in summer and could in winter. Lately winters are softer and short.

    VISIT US !!!!

    You're right, Doodlebug, I would also like to read more about this. So here's my share:

    I'm born and bred in Munich, Germany. Even from the center of the town where I live, on a clear day you can see the Alps. They're near enough for a skiing day trip or to go there over the weekend, which about everybody except me does. Being the southernmost big city of Germany, you can also reach Vienna (Austria) or even Venice (Italy) in a matter of ours. Much more to my liking.

    Cannot say too much about typical Bavarian food, it sure has a big variety on anything meat. But of course we have everything from all over the world, especially asian and italian food. One thing from the local cuisine I do love are Semmelknödel in Pfifferlingrahmsoße. I leave that to your imagination, nothing morbid, though.

    And what about you, Lea? Wäre doch nett, wenn du auch was erzählst.

    Sunderland - on the North East Coast - UK..... Lived here roughly 39 years, originally from a small (back then) fishing village 6 miles further down the coast called Seaham... So I have always lived by the sea... Lots of my childhood memories are filled with being down on the beach, being all dried off by my mum and fresh clean dry socks put on my cold feet and sitting eating egg and tomato sandwhiches that somehow always had a bit of sand in..... Ha !!! Was all a very cosy feeling after being in the water for hours .....

    Sunderland, well I've watched it grow from a decent sized Town with people who love their Football, Fish and Chips and Beers into a large City with a very grand excellent University, spread in parts all over the City, and many large Businesses, Bars and Shops. Where our Docks many years ago had ship making facilities now house, boating marina, apartments, restaurants and there is still our born and bred Glass making service..

    We do have Winter, Summer, Spring and Autumn, but they can all interact just to mess our heads up.... As in Friday here was cold and rainy Saturday the sun peeped out, then yesterday was a glorious sunny dry day which means most abandon their coats and boots from Friday and flock down to the sea side... Many of you know I'm quite housebound through health but, I went to a Christening yesterday with family (my first time out since early January), and Afterwards as I don't get out that much Nick took me for a drive along our Sea front..... I still get amazed at the amount of people that the second the sun appears even if still pretty cool... They just flock to the sea side, sit outside the cafes, queues for the fish and chips and of course the Icecreams..... there were even some in the water !!!! Brave souls...

    Yes further North we have the larger City of Newcastle famous for being our rivals in the Football world (I for one don't live in that world)
    ha !!

    But I think because in my heart and coming from a small country type village all those moons ago, I love visiting the Countryside places, Bowness in the Lake District and Kent in the Southern part of the U.K. Two of my most favourites....

    Being with Nick, he has relatives over in Canada and the US so it is our intention to visit, a little plan we have for in a year or two.... :-)

    Chic - my daughter has just moved to Newcastle as she goes to the University there. I visit her as often as I can as I have come to love the North. The people are so friendly. What I cannot understand is how, on a cold day, I'm swathed in coat, scarves, gloves etc and the Geordie girls are all waking around in skirts and t shirts!!!! Perhaps I'm just a softie southerner lol

    I have been know to have the odd cheeky latte now and again, not sure I could drink a pint though, I'd be buzzing with all that caffeine
