I've just seen a reportage about this one !
Nothing famous about my hometown. It is in Normandy, France, was destructed at 95% during WWII, and the guy who discovered the Venus of Milo was born there.
Now I live not far from there, in Rouen, city know for its numerous churches and for burning Joan of Arc.
I've been to both Normandy and Rouen - I spent 3 months in France a couple years ago.
I grew up in Columbus, Ohio, now living in Greenville, SC, which was an old textile town - in fact, i used to live in one of the old textile mills, they converted it into apartments. Well, not exactly old compared to some of the 16th century houses in Rouen...
No tea yet, headed back to the kitchen to make some Snowbud now.
