JFF: Where are you from?

I feel like now that we've moved I don't know you guys anymore... If you're willing to share, what country are you from? I know a few of you but...

I'm from the Western US.

Also see: FAQ: What Time Zone are you in?
When replying to this thread ("JFF: Where are you from?"), please include the time zone you are in, when it is not obvious.

I'm originally from Minnesota, but I have lived in the great state of Misery (Missouri) for the last 36 years. In other words, I'm a newcomer by local standards.

We've been working alongside each other for months and I had no idea you lived in Missouri. I've always imagined you in Minnesota. Maybe it's because you do the whole "you betcha" vernacular so well, lol.

After 36 years, I still have a Minnesota accent, ya sure you betcha.

I volunteered at KSJN (now KNOW) during pledge drive before Garrison Keeler's "A Prairie Home Companion" went national.

I tend to be careful about disclosing personal information online.

I've been to India but never to Calcutta. Oh, so many places to travel and so little money, lol.

I was in Delhi as a child. I passed out in the heat at the Taj Mahal.

Pibby,

Summer time in Delhi is too hot. That's why most of the people from the western countries do not visit Delhi during Summer season. Winter time is awesome there. Temperature remains C to 15°C at that time.

Suzy,

Where did you visit when you came to India?

Most of the foreigners who visit India, do not come to Kolkata and the eastern part of India, because there are not very popular tourist spots at this region.

These are some of the popular tourist locations in India where the foreigners love to visit (I am writing the name of the states):

Rajasthan
Kerala
Tamilnadu
Maharashtra
Goa
Delhi
Andhra Pradesh
Madhya Pradesh
Himachal Pradesh
Kashmir (Now closed due to political reason with Pakistan)

I love that city. I was only there once for a few days but it was a lovely time. And I always say that Scandinavians know how to live - oh, how my country could learn a lot from Sweden. I think I've told Peter similar things, too.

Haacht, Belgium, voted best beer in the world last year by ratebeer.com.

If you had a different user name on the IMDb message boards, it would be interesting to mention this (e.g. Peter is pbn, Jen is yrnej, etc.)
