I'm off on my travels next week, to the USA. I'm taking in Long Island (the Hamptons!), New York City, Niagara Falls, the rather random city of Adrian, Michigan and Chicago.
Last time I went to New York, I loved the people-watching, seeing those glorious travel moments.
This time I think my ears will be attuned to hear more than three examples.
In anticipation, I've been looking at one of my favourite phrases to search on twitter: "people talk about in" - seeing what people talk about in certain places. It almost always seems to be America.
All people talk about in LA is their health. All people talk about in New York is their rent.
