We live in Viking City near the equator of Mars. It is a series of large plastic domes and connecting passages and air locks which cover all the buildings that make up our town.
It's called Viking City after one of the first space craft from Earth which landed near here in 1977 and sent back pictures. There are three other such 'cities' on Mars and a number of smaller research stations but Viking City is the largest.
