Dove abiti?

dove = where, first encountered in the previous post

abiti = 2nd person singular present tense of abitare, to live. It sounds like English "habitat!"

Where do you live? This is variation on that traveler question. For me, this question is actually simpler to answer than "Di dove sei?" since I was born in Hong Kong, currently live in the United States, and have moved around quite a bit within the U.S. This question is also pretty fun to ask, since most of the people I know or meet have moved quite far from where they were born or raised.

E tu? And you? Dove abiti?
