If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.

Born in Indonesia, living permanently in Australia since 8 years ago. Citizen here, but I suppose I am still an Indonesian? So selected Asia.

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:

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.
