It used to be that when someone asked me "Where are you from?" it took ten minutes of explaining. The town closest to my childhood home is so small no one has ever heard of it, so I had to start with the nearest recognizable place which is San Francisco 200 miles south, then explain my way north. It was a hassle every time.
Thankfully the internet has changed things. Now when people ask I can direct them to pictures. It makes me wonder, is there any place on earth that hasn't been photographed?
