Question Where in the world are you from?

We have learned fully half our vegan members are from outside the US. Now we want you to be more specific about where you're from. However, this poll is for everyone- vegetarians, vegans and raw foodies alike- all our members. Vote in the poll, then add a post to be more specific about your nation or location. You can also tell us whether you're veggie, vegan or raw.

U.S. - Washington currently, but Alaska, Oregon, California, Nevada, and Oklahoma in the past.

Edit- and I'll be moving next year around July to perhaps another new state.

Just simple geography. They're all islands west of the Continent. Maybe Iceland should have been grouped with Greenland and Canada? Similar situation with India and the Mid East- they're not necessarily related either nationally nor culturally, but more geographically. It's the Russians I worry about, since their country spans two continents. How will they vote? It's not easy dividing up a world map in a simple way.

Your poll is missing all the countries between Mexico and South America (aka Central America, and also the Caribbean)

Thank you. I have amended the poll to include them now.

Vegetarian from the USA. Lived all over the eastern half of the US, though mostly in Florida. Currently in Chicago, IL area.

Interesting geographic fact that I learned at my current job: All of Central America, and all of the islands between the North American and South American mainland are officially part of North America. Even the islands that are hundreds of miles south of Florida, but within 20 miles of South America are still officially part of North America. I never knew where the dividing line was between N and S America, but now I know.
