America was home for six years.
Over the years, I have visited only these American cities - New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Chcago, St. Louis, New Orleans, Phoenix, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Palm Springs and San Diego.
More familiar with the smaller towns like New Haven, Hamden, Milford, New London, Cambridge, Santa Clara, Mountain View, San Jose, Santa Cruz, Milpitas.

Also have made day trips or just passing through the 8 states of Alaska, Delaware, Indiana, Maryland, New Hampshire, Oregon, Rhode Island, West Virgina.
And so this leaves 26 untrodden States of Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kenctucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming
