My World Tuesday #1

I can breathe in a small town
— John Mellencamp (Small Town)–

Welcome to my home in Hickory, North Carolina! Nestled between the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Piedmont regions, Hickory is a sister city of Altenburg, Germany.

Union Square (downtown) reflected on the windows of the old train depot.

My World Tuesday is a new meme brought to you by the Skywatch Friday team. For a virtual tour of cities around the world, please visit That’s My World!
