I don't live in Indiana but I do live in southern Illinois...moved back from living in San Fran..
They also pull over to side of the road for funerals...and pull directly to the side of road for all police/rescue
People are just nice in the midwest..but they do gossip a LOT..so watch what you say...
People wave all the time and have a genuine interest in getting to know outsiders...We don't see a lot of city people, so we LOVE hearing stories
about the big cities..
I don't know about where you are...but people do want more cultural things and nice shopping and things to do...but unfortunately companies and
stores won't relocate here..so we are left with what's left..I really dislike people making fun of the midwest and south..YES there are still hicks
and ignorant people..but for the most part we are not that much different than people in the city...
I notice when the occasional Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican restaurants open people FLOCK to them just for something new and exotic..people are
really open to trying new things and getting know different people...it's just we rarely get a chance to do that..because city people like to refer
to us as 'flyover' states..sad really.....
