A dyed in the wool Pittsburgher, now I live in Brisbane, Australia. Much is different between Pittsburgh and Brisbane. But much is the same too-- both cities straddle rivers with many bridges connecting people and ideas. I used to live right next to Carnegie Mellon and Univ of Pittsburgh. Now I live very close to the University of Queensland.
I am in the last year of the International Baccalaureate program at St Peters Lutheran College which is actually a prep school in Brisbane.
