Hi, I'm from the small coastal town of Amanzimtoti in South Africa. The yearly sardine run is coming in the next month or so, and has been every year for as long as I can remember. People flock to the beaches with baskets, nets & even linen to get hold of the thousands of fish in the shallows. We have abundant wildlife; Namaqualand (God's magical flower garden that comes up every spring); & many more ... Ronelle Fulton South Africa

Wow, how beautiful your place is. For me, I lived here in Baguio City, considered as the summer capital of the Philippines. Baguio is my hometown and it will always remain this way. There is just nothing like it elsewhere in the Philippines to work for a living and start a family of your own. I love Baguio very much because of its cool weather, friendly residents, scenic mountain views, pine-scented air and clean environment. A lot of beautiful tourist spots here in Baguio which is a must see when you visit the Philippines...

Sounds like a wonderful place! South Africa has such a big variety of tourist attractions, I don't know where to start. The dreamiest place I've been to in my country, is another (very) tiny beach resort called Strandfontein on the West coast. You can spot the whales playing very close to shore, explore the caves, eat crayfish & snoek, watch the diamond divers, just too much to tell.

Thanks for sharing how beautiful your place is. I hope I can visit your place one day. I know we are far from each other but I am still hoping to visit your place...

Thank you for sharing with us where you live, interesting, I live about 25 miles out of London, UK, I have the luxury of the beautiful quiet peaceful countryside beside me, you do need a car to live round here as the buses do not run often or late into the evenings. It only takes 45 minutes by tube/underground to get into the central city. We do have a small airfield in our village but it certainly has no trouble, crime or problems with noisy neighbours.

I live in Singapore, a small country. It is a busy city with lots of tree and high rise building. The place is pretty clean. There are different races of people here and live in harmony. Currently for these seven months, I live in California (San Jose). This place had lots of park that we can go around easily. Lots of beautiful beaches and mountain. The people I had know here is helpful.

Hi maehan It's great to hear there's a country were different races of people that can actually live in harmony. South Africa is called "the rainbow nation", because we have so many different races and cultures. Unfortunately we are still trying to overcome the apartheid era, and racism is still very much alive. I guess everything gets better with time. Sounds like you're having an lovely time in California. Do enjoy the wonderful scenery.-Ronelle

Good gracious .. only a couple of weeks ago I watched a TV programme about the sardines and how they always amass off the coast of South Africa every year .. I can't pretend to remember any of the town names .. but I bet they must have filmed very close to where you live .. how odd is that .. what a coincidence .. especially as I was answering another discussion when I spotted yours at the bottom of the page ... I live in a very rural and flat part of England .. roughly about 60-70 miles north from London .. a Fenland area .. I live right on the edge of my village and have views across open fields to the horizon .. or roughly 20 odd miles of unbuilt farmland ..

Oh my, it sounds beautiful. Must be so peaceful. What do you do to entertain yourself? I hate the busy life we live in. Traffic every morning, people buzzing around... I would rather go camping, wake up early in the morning and watch the sun come up with a nice hot cup of freshly brewed coffee...-Ronelle Fulton
