TEXAS

And thank you Karine regarding your comment about your previous word “Olympia”. It is indeed the town where the Olympic Games took place for the very first time, and continues to be the town where the Olympic flame comes from, and from there it goes out to the city which has been elected for the next Olympic Games.

Hello everyone in the game.... Just 7'00 o'clock for me before going to work...

So ... Nicole, I had the chance to visit your beautiful country and also Olympia, very interested !
Indy, fine this little town from Normandy, Where do you live, I "know" the Suisse Normande" around Caen
B... what is the last one ??? don't know. Indeed, it would be intersting to write a couple of words when the place is not obvious, not each time, and only if you want, of course

Ok.... I actually prepare a surprise for you all... but let's go with a P and an easy one...

PARIS !!!
Enough obvious I think... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Have a nice day

Mac: Two bazookas. But I can explain.
Jack: Bazookas? You can explain bazookas? YOU CANNOT EXPLAIN BAZOOKAS!

Hi Karine and Jen and everyone,

Okefenokee Swamp is a national park in the US State of Georgia. I don't know anything about it except that its name was given to it by the Indians (Native Americans). I will have to read more about it.

Jen - thanks for the information about your hometown!

Ok, here goes the next entry:

Ypsilanti (a city in the US state of Michigan - yes it is a real name) :D :D

Thanks, rjas441, for that info about Indianapolis-I didn't know all that.

Here's my submission:

Shenandoah Valley A beautiful Valley in Virginia that has gorgeous views and is now a National Park. Shenandoah is also the name of a River in Virginia,

It (Shenandoah) was also the title of a very moving Civil War movie about people who lived in that valley and that starred James Stewart.....(young people probably have no idea who James Stewart was but he was a fine actor back in the day.....) :D
