I was born in England and am very keen on traveling so I have been to many different countries. I lived in Finland and in Australia for a while. I have also studied in the Netherlands. The most interesting city in the UK is London. It has the River Thames, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and Tower Bridge. Rye is a historic town with a lovely old church with a tower. From the top the views are amazing. I like the cities of York and Chester with their old buildings. The Lake District is especially pretty. I went to Portugal last year. We flew into Faro then got a train to Lagos on the Algarve coastline. Next we got a train to Lisbon and lastly we got a train to Tavira. From Lisbon we did a day trip to Sintra. We had a wonderful time and got some autumn sunshine.

Hi, Khanana. I was born in United States of America in the state of Kentucky. It is a very beautiful ste with mountains and rivers and lakes as well as coal mines. I left there when I was about 5 and moved to Mississippi. I have also lived in Alabama, Georgia, & Michigan. I visited Canada one time but have never been out of this country otherwise. I've visited a lot of the different states here and if I had to live anwhere of my choosing, I would pick Tennessee. I really love it there.

I have never traveled to Portugal, but there is something about this country that impressed me a lot... and i'm speaking about the music... This summer I've spent a week in Taize (a community where gather people from different countries) and there were some portuguese songs which I enjoyed very much... Unfortunately, I don't know their names or lyrics... I have found this on the internet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jq3Om3KnLJQ&feature=user I would be very grateful if you could tell me the title or send me some lyrics :D There was also a song from which I remember only the part with parapaparapaparapapa... I suppose these are traditional songs... if you know others like these let me know:) I'm waiting for your answer!Thanks!:D

hi. i am glad you enjoy popular portuguese music, which is a bit unusual even along portuguese people, who call it 'musica pimba'! my favourite singer in all world is portuguese and people used to label him 'pimba' but i always told he was different and today he is the most successfull portuguese singer selling out all concert tickets in big places! I dont know yet exactly which kind of music you like and i dont know if you will like him but anyway i give you his site, hope you enjoy! His name is Tony Carreira. www.tonycarreira.com/ About that music you saw in Youtube... its title is 'Mulher Gorda'. Is very well known because it has a funny lyric! You can listen to this music and others in the same kind in this link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGeViFU|RAE&feature=related (actually i cant paste nothing here and i transcribed it but it has some error??? so you can go in youtube and make a search on 'mulher gorda'...you can also add 'estudantina' in the search because thats ussually sang by university students) about lyrics... i found a nice site which contain a lot of lyrics, and 'mulher gorda' is among them. Here is the site: www.my-lyrics.ws/actividades/detalhe.php?ID=2837 You can tell me more about what you like or not and ask me more anything and maybe i can help you! Hope you enjoy! Bye for now..
