Google Map image Where did I come from? I played a bit with Google Maps. And I found a nice picture of the area where I grew up.  The map to the left shows the city where I was born and the village where I spend most of my earlier fun time;-)

It also shows all four places where I went to school before I went to the university.

People always ask me, where I’m from. But there are no really big cities in that area, or at least not too many famous ones which are also well known here in the US.

For Europeans: I was born in the city where the inventor of the “western china/porcelain” was born.  My Gymnasium/High School was in the city which has a famous glass and optics history among other things;-)

Have fun;-)
