Appalachia, The South, Mountain Folk...

The funny thing about new Yorkers, and people from the NYC area, is that they're often well traveled and curious abut other cultures. It's just that we are more likely to have travelled in Europe or Asia than to Ohio or west Virginia or just about anyplace in the U.S. that doesn't have a major city, a beach, or great skiing next to it.

(Unless you do something like I did and went to grad school in one of these heartland real America places)

Undergrad for me. Also, my dad travels a lot for his work, and I tagged along before I was adult-aged.

mcdonis has asked me to delete this thread, but I think it's pretty good, so I'm just going to lock it.
