Hi! I live in West Hollywood, California, which is adjacent to Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and Hollywood. Throughout its history, California has attracted people from all over the world who have settled here. That means we have virtually every kind of food, art and music right here in our city! I'm lucky to have so many fascinating cultures all mixed together here in my home town.
This is also a spectacular geographic area bordered by beaches and mountains. The Mojave desert is just a 2.5-hour drive away. Hiking and photography are two of my favorite pastimes.
Even with all the diversions here in Southern California, I still love to travel and I love postcards. That's why I think Postcrossing is such a great idea.
Topics that interest me most:
Archaeology, including sites and artifacts
Italian art and architecture
Medieval art (the weirder the better!) and architecture
Science of all kinds
Volcanoes, glaciers, interesting geological features
Maps and cartography
Music (especially Jazz)
Vintage motel or restaurant postcards
Architecture, modern or historic
I like both black-and-white and color images. My favorite city is Rome but there is much of the world I haven't discovered yet.
Here's a random question you can answer if you like: Do you have bowling in your country?
So far I've heard "Yes!" from Belarus, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Mexico, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine and Wales.
I look forward to hearing from you on any topic!
