Well it's quite late for an introduction but i'll do it anyways just so you can know me a bit (and not go off topic in some other forum).
First off, I am not a US citizen, but I have been in the US (1990-1992), but I was just in the NYC area (NJ actually). Yes I did go to the WTC (RIP), so at least i could visit it, even before the '93 attack. I also know Washington DC, and I also was in Toronto and Montreal (yes, I do know it's in Canada).
Right now, you might be asking yourself, well where the hell does this guy live? I live in a small country called Chile. Don't know where it is? just get a world map, and follow straight down from the US East coast to the thin part of South America. You'll see a nice long and narrow country. I live In Valdivia (not shown it the map probably), it's a 175,000 inhabitant city. Famous for it's beer, river, University, and for the 1960 earthquake (the most powerfull earthquake registered on earth, 9,5 Richter)
What do I do? Right now... enjoy the summer vacations, next year, probably I start my first year of Architecture. (I see that some of you planners deeply hate Architects, but hey, there isn't any career here in Planning. )
Just in case you were asking yourselves about the nick... no I didn't take it from He-Man, as many misbelieve. I as quite thin when I was young (when I started in the Internet... that's around 1996) and since then it just got stuck with me
