Just curious where everyone is from here.

When you say the country/county/state/region you are from, please say what you think that place is famous for what is stereotypically of that place.

I'm from Yorkshire, England. England is famous for tea, the queen, The Beatles, football hooliganism, etc.

Yorkshire is famous for cricket, the Pennaies (the hills) and having down-to-earth northern people living there.

I've now moved to a little town called Gainsborough in Lincolnshire.

Gainsbrough is, apparently, big for drugs. There's a saying in Lincolnshire "if you can't find drugs anywhere, go to Gainsborough" which is worrying.
