    OT - International Flavor

    I just wanted to say how much I enjoy the fact that so many forumites are from different parts of the world. I wish there was a way we could all get to know each other better. I am an old guy and the older I get the more interested I become in learning about other culures, governments and ways of life. So little time and so much to learn.

    I've noted the same thing. And it has not escaped me that many folks are posting in English when it is likely not their native language. (I wish I had more facility with other languages.)

    I very much enjoy hearing from forum members' around the world. And I love getting a little "local flavor" members' posts. It might be a picture with a bit of local scenery alongside a watch or or even just a mention of the local weather in a post.

    Well difference between this forum and other forums is that we tend to discuss these kinda topics on rather regular basis... and best news is that no one minds it...

    We've discussed beer, wine, customs... just about everything that you can think of but the catch is to setup a topic...

    So if you two are up for setting up an interesting topic folks will discuss it and I doubt that anyone will mind "Off Topic" conversation...

    Welcome to the forum, and to the quite possibly THE friendliest place on WWW...

    P.S.

    As for english we use it simply to be curtious to other folks that might not speak english but I've seen folks exchanging posts in other languages here... mostly to say HI I guess....

    You got it spot on, but for fviolfot, which is actually vfiolfot, which, I'm sure some people here could tell you, has a completely different meaning.

    The multicultural facet of this forum is amazing.

    Saludos para todos.

    Actually, I'm sure Sjors will tell you Dutch is even more complex.
