Yes, the right hand comes to rest on top of the palm of the left. Maybe I should just have shown them already in contact?
can you explain Kathmandu:
left flat hand palm up fingers to the right ( no problem)
right hand Index – Hand – palm facing the signer moving down - mh – how to get the touch between the two hands – right hand on top of the left hand ??

Betreff: Re: Signs for Cities and States - can you write the name of YOUR city and post to the List?
I don't know ASL, so I don't know a sign for Detroit, Ann Arbor, or Oberlin (my US places).
So I'm posting the sign for Kathmandu, the city where I learned to sign!

I am a West Coaster, and I must admit that people get East Coast city signs mixed up along with our own city signs. But this is how I personally sign the 4 commonly confused "B" cities, since I am very picky and have been known to correct people at times. ;-) It seems to match what you sign, Kim.

those of us in Boston, Massachusetts sign it thus:

But some of my signing friends tell me that when you're on the West Coast, it's the other way around!

NAMES OF CITIES and STATES Around the World
Thank you, Ingvild, Charles and Stefan for your signs!
I would suggest that you add your signs to the International Sign Dictionary online:
SignPuddle for International Signs Dictionary
I just copied mine for La Jolla, California from the ASL Dictionary to the International Dictionary, and I hope you can do the same for your signs too…
And I hope more names of cities, states, countries and other international signs can be added too…
Here is what we have so far…and I really like all four spellings! Thanks to you all…
