A while back i met a gal in Jackson, Wyoming from New York City. She was 35 and had never been out of the city, central park was the only nature she had ever seen. She landed in Jackson and from the airport you can see the grand Tetons and called her mother and told her you gotta come see this. her mother had never been out of the city either and neither had ever driven a car. What culture shock she was in.
