Oberösterreich. Nahe beim Attersee [I would so like to translate this as "adder lake", but that would be incorrect.]

Heh. :hi:
Ich komme aus Wien, was ist mit dir?

Ooooh.... Never mind me, I'm just jealous! :D
I lived in Vienna from 2000 to 2001, and it's the most beautiful city in Europe (me thinks). Too bad we were starving students back then and didn't have much time to enjoy...
Anyways, just wanted to say lucky you. I wish I could say that in German. :D

Hello Nimeni,

How do you get the umlaut over the letters?
Does your keyboard have keys for letters with umlauts?

Thanks, Alvah

Ah, that would be Du Glückliche then. :)
I agree, it's a beautiful ciy, but somehow, I don't feel very comfortable around its inhabitants. I would say it's the different mentalities. I wouldn't call myself an immigrant anymore, as I've lived here for more than 15 years by now, but I still think it shows. The Austrians are a bit too cold for my taste.

Oh, we have the according letters already on the keyboard, I wouldn't know how you could do the same with a different keyboard, sorry. :(

Ha!! I could share some stories, but it's a public forum, LOL.
Suffice it to say, I too loved the city but had some issues with its inhabitants....

I do miss roller skating along the Danau, though... :( That was my favorite thing!

Ah yes, the Donau... my favourite part too, but I don't recommend swimming in it like I did once. Gosh, I felt so unclean afterwards. lol

Nimeni: Ja ich bin auch aus Wien, wir scheinen aber irgendwie die Einzigen zu sein...

Everyone: yeah 'tis true: the Vienese are a bit cranky and like to complain about almost everything, they are not easy to get used to even for me as a native! (I've actually been born in a small village near the city). But yet, this place also has its advantages- it's quite safe and one can elegantly relax and get drunk or something. ;)

N: du sagtest, dass Du seit 15+ Jahren hier bist- woher kommst Du?

Best wishes to all, Han.

Naja, mich störts nicht, Österreich ist ja recht groß. ;)

Ich komme ursprünglich aus Kuba und meine Mutter ist mit mir hergekommen, als ich ungefähr drei Jahre alt war. :)

Well, my granddaughter is Austrian, and she lives in Salzburg. So I have a strong connection. I love Salzburg. Went there for her birth two years ago. I'd love to go to Vienna.
