Only in the US

Posted by on Dec 4, 2012 in Countries, United States | 4 comments

This article is a smorgasbord of photos and facts that made us feel that we were indeed in the United States. For the most part, these are things you won’t see anywhere else.

Looking back at our 2.5-month trip to the US and viewing the photos that we took, we came up with the idea of posting photos of things you only see in the US, or things that seemed strange, new or weird to us. Those points are posted randomly, and don’t have any connection to each other (besides the fact that they were seen in the US).

Only in the US can you see:
