Thanks! If there would be jobs as well, I could really imagine to go back... even if it is a "sacred destination"

Oh, communism was invented in Trier, I guess that tops "the spiritual home of Microsoft"

Wettest town in Malaysia, with a lot of 'firsts' including the first railway line. At the market, folk bet on when the first drop of rain will roll the roof each day during the wet season.

Whoever took this photo would have been standing outside the very building in which I was born, in a hippyish 70s homebirth.

Yep - I suppose the 'Hertfordshire' tag narrowed it down a bit, but have you been there (no doubt on the way to somewhere else)?

Re: Postcards from your birth place

The hospital isn't quite visible in these photographs, but it's within reasonable walking distance from where the photographers would have been standing.






And although I was born here in town, I actually grew up in a 'suburb' of this place.
