I am always interested in learning about new places. Can you share where you are from and a bit about your home area? I am from a small town in Northeast PA. called Sayre. The population is only about 450o, but it is a great place to live and raise a family.

I am from Trivandrum, Kerala, India. Thiruvananthapuram district From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Thiruvananthapuram District is the southernmost district of the Indian state of Kerala. The headquarters is in the city of Thiruvananthapuram(Trivandrum) which is also the capital city of Kerala. The district has an area of 2192 km², and a population of 3,234,356 (as per the 2001 census), the second largest in Kerala. It is divided into four talukas: Thiruvananthapuram, Chirayinkil, Nedumangad, and Neyyattinkara. The urban bodies in the district are the Thiruvananthapuram Corporation, Attingal, Neyyattinkara, Varkala and Nedumangad municipalities. Thiruvananthapuram literally means City of Lord Anantha. The name derives from the deity of the Hindu temple at the centre of the city. Anantha is the mythical thousand hooded serpent- Shesha on whom Padmanabhan or Vishnu reclines. The temple of Vishnu reclining on Anantha, the Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple, which dates back to the 16th century, is the most recognizable iconic landmark of the city as well as the district. Along with the presiding deity of Sri Padmanabha, this temple also has temples inside it, dedicated to Lord Krishna and Lord Narasimha, Lord Ganesha, and Lord Ayyappa. The city was the capital of the Travancore state before the independence. Consequent to the recommendations of the State Reorganisation Commission, the Vilavancode taluk from Thiruvananthapuram was merged with Tamil Nadu along with three other southern taluks of Thovala, Agastheewaram and Kalkulam from Travancore and the State of Kerala came into being on 1st November, 1956. One of the other major landmarks in the district is the Government Seceratariat. This white coloured building that was built by the Kings of Travancore is the seat of power. The central Durbar hall was where the assembley used to meet during the imperial rule. To compliment this gothic structure, less than a mile down the road you have the modern legislature complex, the largest legislature building in India.

I'm originally from Edinburgh in Scotland but now live in a small town about 18 miles from there. Think the population is about 6000. I like living here, you get the best of both worlds - I only need to walk a couple of minutes and I'm in the countryside with hills and fields but am also close enough to the capital for shopping and nightlife etc.
