I am just curious where all of you guys live. (No I am not asking you for your adress don't worry) You can share anything you like about your hometown. Paint a picture with words. Post a few pictures, yours or Google's or just tell a few things about the house you live in.
I'll start. The pictures aren't my own, because quite frankly I don't take pictures if I am not on a holiday.
I live in a small city called Gorinchem (Gorinchem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and the city is located almost in the middle of the country. A few important highways run next to my city and because of that we get lots of traffic jams. Most people know my town from the traffic reports on the radio. A few rivers run through the town as well and they are rather busy, just like the roads.
The largest churchtower is the most famous building in town, not because of it's extraordinary beauty but because it is leaning like the tower of Pisa.
Personally I think this is the prettiest building in town. The window blinds look like they are made out of candy and the overall design of the house is so typical of Dutch architecture. The building is also very well maintained.
This is an aerial view of a part of the historical city centre. I love the roofs. The orange color makes me happy somehow.
And this is probably the prettiest street in town. Old warehouses that have been converted into homes. Also very expensive. Don't expect to buy a house for less than 600.000 euro.
Our family can't afford a house in towncentre so we live in something similar to this. Not a pretty house, but I feel at home.
