I've noticed there are people here from all over the world and it would be interesting to see exactly where from! I'm from Sweden myself, located in the northern part of Europe for those that might not know.

I am from India. This part of the country is within "Orissa" (one of the states in India) and this city (Bhubaneswar) is called the 'city of temples'. People are very simple here and its natural beauty is extraordinary. Main tourist spots of the city are 'Lingaraj Temple', 'Kedar Gouri temple', 'Uday Giri & Khanda Giri' (caves), 'Nandan Kanan', 'Dhauli', so on and so forth.

We have the same kind of weather at the moment... it's fairly warm, but the sky is clouded over and it's been raining on and off for little more than a week now.. It's really boring, it's supposed to be sunny!
