I am originally from Napoli in Italy, but spent part of my childhood in northern France. For the last 5 years I have been living in California (near San Francisco) and I loved it.
I have been living in Sydney for two years now and I am loving this city.
Differentiating under the integral sign
Observing people (not in a creepy way)
Making movie and TV references
Remembering useless details
To be fair, here are also some things I am not good at:
Smiling in pictures
Waiting in line
Waiting in general
Solving non-linear differential equations
Driving (although people tell me that if you can drive in Napoli, then you can pretty much drive everywhere...)
