Nothing to see here, please move along

Well, what can I say? This very boring city, which is the capital of a very boring state, is my home. Fortunately my parents taught me the value of travel from a very early age, so I don't just stay here all the time like a lot of people do. If you ever find yourself in Topeka for some reason, have a look at my travel tips for some things to do.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Right in the middle of the country, so I'm equidistant from everything.
  • Cons:Not much going on here at all.
  • In a nutshell:Topeka is a Native American word for "A good place to grow potatoes." I've never tried growing potatoes here, so I don't know whether that's true. Still, I think it's fairly telling that they couldn't think of anything else when they named it.
