Introduce Yourself - November 2018

Hello everyone! Welcome to Local Guides Connect. Please take a moment to introduce yourself to our community.


As “Introduce Yourself” threads can be lengthy, we start a new one each month and lock past threads. You can check past threads, like October’s, to see who recently joined and where they’re from (simply search for "Introduce Yourself"). If you're new, please use this thread to post your “I'm new” or “Hello world” posts. We’ll merge any posts we find elsewhere with this thread to keep things organized.


I’ll start first.

  1. Name: Atsuko
  2. Location: New York, U.S. (originally from Nagoya, Japan)
  3. What I love about being a Local Guide: In the beginning I only contributed food photos from restaurants I visited, but one day I included photos of the inside and outside of restaurant, and received many more views than usual. Then I realized that people not only want to know about foods, they also want to know about the atmosphere of the place, so they can decide if they want to go with their friends, family, kids, etc. Since then, I always try to take many different types of photos in the hope that they would help others. When I receive many views, I feel good knowing that I've helped many people.
  4. My favorite thing to explore: I like food, and New York, where I live, is a great place to explore it. New York is a "melting pot" and there are many different communities - East Asian, South Asian, South American, Eastern European, Middle Eastern, and on and on. People come here from everywhere, they share their food in restaurants, and I eat it! -- dumplings, momo, jigae, dosa, piroshki, empanadas, pizza, paella, etc etc.
  5. Fun fact about me: I read an article that the roots of some vegetables and the seeds of some fruits can re-grow - even things like lettuce, celery, ginger, tomatoes, etc. So I experimented. After I ate an avocado, I put the seed in water, and it did grow and became a small plant (see a photo below). I put a roots of green onions in the water and green onion grow again (and I ate them:)). Currently I'm observing a seed from peach, and hope it will grow in some way.

3. What I have about being a Google local guide in India. The ability to help others make good decision on my own experience was behind,becoming a Google local guide. I love that. 

I am very familiar with many professional's and business owners. I would like to put them on the map. Which helps the community through Google maps. I want to dedicate my attention towards developing and sharing my reviews and photos on Google maps.

Introduce Yourself - November 2018

Hello all :)

As I'm back to Connect after some while, I think it would be good to introduce myself to users who joined the community recently.

  1. Name: Amir
  2. LocationIran
  3. What I love about being a Local Guide: I was contributing to Google Maps and Google Earth since years ago but something was missed those times, the Connectivity and People. Now by Local Guides program Google made Maps more social and live! This is really amazing for me to have more ways to inform people about good places and to help them for better commuting. Also receiving their feedback about my activities (that all is possible through Local Guides program) help me to do better and better.
  4. My favorite thing to explore: I mostly prefer to explore art centers and cultural places like museums, galleries, historical sites and etc because they bring mind relaxing and thinking simultaneously for me. I also deeply love to go to nature and foodie places.
  5. Fun Fact about me: I never can stop contributing to Maps :D as a top contributor and old user, I count this my responsibility to share my knowledge on the map and help others to contribute better on Maps. This was main reason for starting Iran Local Guides community in which as a moderator I try to share my mapping knowledge with others and also to learn things from them.Tehran Meetup in Peace Day 02.jpgMe and a few of my amazing Local Guides friends in front of Iran National Museum
