I live in Fuerth, Germany:

Fuerth is located next to the city of Nuernberg and it is a small "melting pot". As far as I know, our citizens origin from about 30 nations as well as 4 world religions are represented here and live peacefully together:
jewish, christian, islam, buddhism.

Fuerth is the most secure large town in the state of Bavaria (we have about 100.000 citizens).

Here you can see a typical scene of a normal day in Fuerth. The building with the tower is our city hall:

The hard question to answer is "Where did you come from to this existence?" :shrug:

Howdy,

I am from Istanbul, as Buddhism the only religion which gets its interest in human mind, I feel very close to Buddhism. I am here to exchange the ideas and to learn more about the natural truths.

I was actually born in Dundee, Scotland but I've lived in Luton since the age of 3 and my mother was from London so I have a Cockney accent :jumping:

I really don't like where I live, it's a very mean town, filled with thugs :cry:
