Hmmm, I'm from and still am in the Philippines. Let's see, for that Great Wall you have there in your country, we have our nice Rice Terraces. We also have beautiful beaches with nice sceneries too but, I wouldn't mind seeing sceneries from other countries. Most places here in our country would have roots on history but, most of the youth today aren't really interested in history anymore. Along with different places would be dialects that even I get confused with. There are also down-sides for this country of ours but, who hasn't? I need not to mention those though.

I really believe that China has so much history. I really like some of the stories that we use to study in college, I think they are either myths or legends.. not really sure though.. Lengthly stories that I really like to read or perhaps watch if possible. We also have alot of stories here but, most of them are really being forgotten which is quite unfortunate.

it's really a pity.Legends contains the imagination of the ancient people.They are always interesting.And in China ,there are many festivals are based on legends.

well, i'm a foreigner living in singapore for my whole life but i will be going back to my own country nepal so won't be in singapore forever. but singapore is also a home to me so i'll describe a little of both countries. singapore is a country with the same warm and humid weather all year round. it's a really small country with tall buildings. it's really developed. on the other hand, nepal is just a developing country and it's really big. there are a lot of mountains and hills there which you don't find in singapore. the most prominent is mount everest which i'm sure most know. they also have more of agriculture than high tech stuff. it's a poor country to say the least but it's rich in history, religion and all. most people are really superstitious and still believe in the old stuff. i love both countries a lot though i just go for visiting to nepal. but later in my future, i will be living there so it's going to be hard to adjust there.

I'm from Indonesia. A beautiful country with lots of islands. I live in the island of Java, in the capital city, Jakarta. We have lots of beautiful places to go to for holidays. The most famous is Bali island. They have beautiful beaches and lots of great hotel and cottages. Jakarta is a busy city, at days and nights. The night life of Jakarta is increasing rapidly now. We have great clubs, lounge and cafes.

I'm in the United States but not where most people think of when they think of the U.S. I live in the south, in Florida, which is very flat and the weather is warm all year long. I live in the center of the state, away from the beaches, in the country but not really in the country. There are many small towns here and many large cattle ranches, citrus farms and sugar cane farms. When you drive past the citrus groves the smell of oranges is a wonderful smell. Florida also has a lot of canals and we have one in our back yard. Florida also has a lot of alligators and sometimes we notice one or two in our canal so we have to be careful with our pets until it leaves or someone traps. There is a beautiful river near my house and a huge lake not too far away that can be seen from outer space. The people here are very friendly and very polite and we enjoy living here.
