    I've lived in Denver for my entire short life, though I hope I'll be able to live in other places as well.

    Where have you lived, and how long?

    South Dakota until age 17. (The rest aren't chronological in order)
    Maryland for 4 months.
    Texas for 5 years.
    Germany for 2 years.
    Washington, D.C. for 1 year.
    Northern Africa (near Egypt) for 2 months.
    Honduras for 3 months.
    Saudi Arabia for 7 months.
    Iraq for 6 months.
    A few other places that were for < 2 months, so I left them out.
    Back to South Dakota for life (or until global warming forces me to move).

    Out of these places, my favorites were Texas, Germany (because of how easy it was to travel to Austria), and of course SD. Least favorite were Iraq, Honduras, and Washington, D.C.

    I was born in Gorkyi, USSR.
    The name of the city has changed as the name of the country I live. :D
    Now thу name of the city is Nizhny Novgorod. It is the 3rd biggest Russian city after Moscow and St. Petersburg.
    Anyway me and my family left it when I was about 2. :) But still I have there many relatives and I visit them regularly.
    Then we moved to Moscow region. We lived there in a small small military village as my father was an officer. Then we moved to the one of the Moscow's region city. Not a big one.
    And finally we moved to Moscow in 1999. And I still live there.
    In one month I am going to live alone having my own flat. :)
