I introduce my self: I'm Italian, and I live in Naples, a strange city, so forgive me if I don't speak English very well. I love to draw maps, and I want to improve my ability, so I'm here. Happy to be with you :).

Welcome to the guild!

You have an interesting nick there.
"Piri-piri" is a very hot pepper from Africa and "Reis" means "Trip" in Dutch :D

Greetings and welcome!

Piri Reis was a Turkish sea captain and cartographer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piri_Reis), I guess that's where you got your nick.

Thank you all! However I didn't know the meaning of the name as Gandwarf explained it, but is very intersting :!: As Ghostman said, I only knew that Piri Reis was a Turkish sea captain and a cartographer, and that there is an anachronistic map of Antarctic that maybe can be attribute to him. And I repeat it: forgive my english!:oops:
