I liked Massachusetts when I went there last Oct. There I was having a smoke outside my downtown Boston hostel, when a 50 year old lady from Georgia next to me asked where I lived. Accurately, I said Germany. After exclaiming she was surprised the accent was so similar to the English one (facepalm), she asked what Germany was famous for.
Ignoring 8 odd years last century and a guy called Adolf, I explained the autobahn no speed limit culture. 5 min later she was amazed you can drive as fast as you like. What else was it famous for she asked. "Beer", I explained. "We have beer here too!" she said. "Have you tried Budweiser? I like Budweiser, it's great, you should try it."
