    I don't mention this too often online, as many people tend to reach blindly for some sense of personal offence, but yes…. I grew up in a little community called Swastika (Swas-TEE-ka), populated by maybe 1500. There was very little there when I was a kid. I grew up splitting firewood for heat, fetching water from the spring down the road, and emptying the inhouse porta-potty-type-thing every day as there wasn't indoor plumbing until my teens.

    The nearest town, Kirkland Lake, was where we went to school and worked. It was a 10 minute drive, or a 1.5hr walk (which I did almost daily). Even at its peak mining days, it couldn't breach the 10,000 person mark.

    …….and now you know, lol.

    I am so glad I spent my childhood in a small town, hope to go back there someday

    can't figure out the location.... maybe in the Med?

    It's in Rajasthan, India :)

    Also, would you be interested in seeing pics of my abs? Since you obviously don"t do reverse image search😏

    Came from a small city 250K then although I think it's a lot bigger now, moved to a smaller city about half the size and have spent most of my life here.

    My parents bought a little travel trailer back when we were a family of 6 and spent many summers camping/traveling up and down the coast. Beautiful area <3

    I grew up in a town of just over 33k. It sure seemed small at the time, lol.

    Country outside small town (1,400) in Oklahoma (which total population is basically 4 million, so not even U.S. medium size city, Dallas/Fort Worth is 5 hours away)

    Medium-sized town (was 30,000 when I was a kid now it’s about 84,000).
    Now I live in a small town adjacent to that town but it’s growing rapidly.

    I grew up in a city with about 8 million people in it. Currently, I live outside a town with a population of 4500.

    Well I was born in a small town
    And I live in a small town
    Probably die in a small town
    Oh, those small communities
    All my friends are so small town
    My parents live in the same small town
    My job is so small town
    Provides little opportunity
    Educated in a small town
    Taught the fear of Jesus in a small town
    Used to daydream in that small town
    Another boring romantic that's me
    But I've seen it all in a small town
    Had myself a ball in a small town
    Married an L.A. doll and brought her to this small town
    Now she's small town just like me
    No I cannot forget where it is that I come from
    I cannot forget the people who love me
    Yeah, I can be myself here in this small town
    And people let me be just what I want to be
    Got nothing against a big town
    Still hayseed enough to say
    Look who's in the big town
    But my bed is in a small town
    Oh, and that's good enough for me
    Well I was born in a small town
    And I can breathe in a small town
    Gonna die in this small town
    And that's probably where they'll bury me
