I've lived in the midwest most of my life (Ohio & Chicago) but I have traveled quite a bit. If you want "typical American life", or if you want a decent idea of where to tour in the mid to north-east quadrant of the country I may have some good ideas. My family had 12 exchange students while I grew up, and we always took them traveling to see more than just our house and home town.
I have studied abroad and traveled through the majority of Italy. I like to travel cheaply (but not living in bus stations) and enjoy spending money on good food and adventure vs. a "pope-ner" (a bottle opener with the Pope on it...seriously, they sell them).
Andromache hasn't been active in the wiki travel guide yet. Have you?
