What countries have you lived in

Posted 08 September 2008 - 09:28 AM

I was born in Israel, lived in India, Italy most of which I was too young to remember. I do remember Mexico, France, Brazil. Nicaragua, and Ecuador. Locally I have lived in California, New Mexico, and Texas (it's almost its own country :P ) One side of my family orginates from Argentina.

I used to speak French and Portugese, but for now I am struggling with Spanish and Englich (English).

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

And I'll bet each state in the US had its own dialect or derivative of English to learn or understand. Heck, get Texas, Louisiana, and Alabama in one room and spark a conversation, you may need interpreters :blink: Then throw in someone from the UK :crazy:

Dad was a chemical engineer, I lived in most of these places before I was 15. We averaged 6 months to 2 years before moving again.
