when you go to different parts of the US what sticks out most in your mind about the people

we just got back from the mid west and i have to say I have not seen soooooo many men with guts hanging over their belts than I did last week. OMG... it was amazing how many over weight men I saw!!! (women too)

oh and more tattoos than I have seen in years.

when we go to the east coast (NY) I notice that they seem to be much more dressed and that there are many many more people with dark curly hair.

  • I would say the accents as well and the different words/sayings for things such as purse/pocketbook, soda/pop, etc.

  • Have you ever lived in different regions? We have and it is quite an eye opener. We are originally from the San Francisco Bay area, which is quite open and health oriented. Not so in the mid west.
