Via conversation, stereotype and simple-daydreaming I have found out that there are States in America which I and others imagine to be dull, lifeless, the pits of the earth. Whether this is the real state of affairs in these states doesn't seem to matter. Some states like California and New York are automatically considered "sexy" while others just don't feature on any top 10 lists. Before I visited the following places, I always considerd them to be no-go zones of dullness: 1) Iowa 2) Indiana 3) Kansas 4) Utah 5) Delaware I have visted most of America's states and can say I was wrong about Utah in the sense of landscape; it is one of the most beautiful places I have seen. I have driven north-south through Indiana in winter too many times to give it another chance. I didn't notice Iowa on my drive-through so I can't say whether it's dull or not. Kansas was flat. Delaware was indeed dull but I wasn't near the water which might have improved matters. Apologies for hurting any feelings. As I said, this is more about imaginary states of dullness than real ones.
