Where the Streets


I'm a big fan of the internet phone service, Skype.  I use it for work and to stay in touch with my family.  Because everyone in my company travels so much we all make it a practice to put our current location in our Skype profile so if someone needs to contact us they can work out the time difference and avoid calling in the middle of the night.

When I'm in Utah I typically just put Salt Lake City in the status - but for some reason last week I changed it and put the name of my hometown, Aurora instead.  This generated several messages asking me exactly Aurora was.  I even heard from a Brazilian friend, currently living in South Africa telling me that she lives in a development called Aurora.

How do you explain a place as small (and wonderful) as Aurora to people who've never experienced it?  I'm not really sure, but I've always secretly thought U2's "Where The Streets Have No Name."  Was a pretty good start.

I have always loved Aurora!! I love the small, quaint feel it has. Every time I go there, it makes me think of my Grandparents and how they both grew up there. For me that town has so much family history there...thats what I love about it.

I always loved visiting Aurora. I thought it was such a cool little town. I always felt safe and I thought it was so cool you could ride 4-wheelers on the streets!
