My new blog
I think the reason I have called my new blog, "The World is a big place" is because I don't particularly feel like an Aussie, I am actually from all over the place. In an effort to introduce myself, I thought I would talk about some of the places I am from! Also, I'm a geography/Japanese high school teacher. As such, I am really enjoying at the moment having a go at a new program put out by a big net presence that starts with G. I can look at all the places where I used to live. For example, Mymensingh in Bangladesh, is the first picture here. I lived here for three years, from about 1980 until 1982. Here is a recent photo from Mymensingh - thanks O.
The second picture is of Nakamura in Kochi Prefecture, Japan. I lived here between 1998 and 2000. I realised, looking at the pictures, that both are next to important rivers. The Brahmaputra in Bangladesh and the Shimanto in Kochi. Both flooded while I lived there, when swollen, they are awesome and frightening. Has anyone else used Google Earth to have a look at a different perspective of their living place?
