Cleveland, OH USA (where I live) is like a person with a punched-in nose, it has to fight hard to hold its head up in the world. And it keeps getting bashed around. The economy, lost jobs, losing sports teams. Sometimes it just seems like the whole city suffers from low self esteem.
But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t some very cool things happening in and around Cleveland. Those of us who live here hear this all the time from visitors who say things like, “My word, I had no idea . . .” And basically folks outside of Cleveland really don’t have any idea of what is here any more that I had any idea what was in Shanghai, China before I visited there.
I am setting up this page so that students can write to me about their cities and let me know What's so Big about Where YOU Live.
