I don't know, I like the place where I live (Middle Urals in Russia). Yeah, there's no palm trees and white sand, and the temperature in winter sometimes gets colder than -30 degrees Celsius, but for some reason I really like my homeland. For me it is strangely beautiful.

Brantanaria wrote:QOTD: If the weather would only stay one way for the rest of your life, how would the weather be?

I live in cold Russia, so I would like the weather to be warm. (it really gets cold here)

Well, I would probably like to live in France, or Germany, Spain.

Hey! Welcome to UDS :>

Just so you know, UDS is anti-fascist so we do not condone praising fascism. If you're simply RPing a fascist nation, we'd still prefer if you didn't praise fascism on the RMB. Please don't do it again!
