    I think I may have done this thread before (or at least someone has...), anyhow let's give it a(nother) whirl.

    What's your town/city famous for?

    My city has a pretty rich maritime history, Sir Francis Drake sank the Spanish Aramada here, the pilgrim fathers left for America from here and Charles Darwin left for the Galapagos Islands from here.

    I can't think of owt that doesn't have something to do with boats/ships, erm...isn't Sharon Davies from round these parts?

    Tijuana B.C. Mexico
    (B.C. stands for Baja California State)

    Sadly, my city is "famous" for the killing of tourists, and the gun fights betwen drug dealers and the H Police Department).
    but thats wrong... Yes, its true that has happened here, but is not like.
    if you go out your house, you might be shot, No.
    Tijuana is not that dangerus, besides, 'it all depends on what your "bussines" is',
    if you just wanna have a good time vacatoning, go ahead, have fun, go touristic places, just don't get your self in trubble.

    On a history note:
    Its believed that in the late 1800 or early 1900, when there was no people or just
    a couple of ranchers here near to the border (with San Diego Ca. US),
    there was a very nice lady called "Juana", and whenever some one or a family
    came trough this region to cross to the US, she geve them shelter, food, or whatevershe could to help,
    so people started calling her "La Tia Juana" (the aunt Juana).
    From there the name TiJuana.

    is plymouth the place where some american rebels invaded planning to burn the town down, then when they got there they realised they forgot their matches.


    i think some soldiers shot some miners in fev during the strike. there's a plaque down the lane about the featherstone massacre or something. i'll check next time i go down.

    i live two miles away from the haribo factory where they make pontefract cakes
