A lot of things about the places we live are becoming more and more the same the world over. And yet there are still some things that are unique to the area you find them in. Today, we want to know what makes where you live distinct.

Maybe it's something about the geography of the area itself or something unusual that's been built there. Maybe it's a local tradition, regional dish, or expression. Whatever it is, tell us in the comments where you are and what about it is so unusual.
