A Super Place called Metropolis

Metropolis Welcome Sign

This blog entry not only includes a unique name of a town, but is now introducing the second theme of this blog…the big statues and unusual sites along the road.

Metropolis Signs

Metropolis is the home of the Giant Superman Statue – a 200 foot tall statue of the Man of Steel.

Funny thing is, as I drove into this town, the first big statue I saw was in front of a grocery store and was NOT the Giant Superman Statue!!

The town is really all about Superman.

Travelographer Extraordinaire. I Enjoy the Ride by traveling and seeing the world around me. We are so busy speeding down the freeways of life that we miss out on the back roads and all the wonderful little stories that every place offers. So, I try to take the less beaten paths and see the real world. I have visited all 50 United States and many provinces in Canada, nearly all prefectures in Japan as well as Seaul, Korea, Shanghai and Suzhou, China and Cenu, Philippines. Also been to Mexico. Father of five, grandfather of 10 and happily married to my sweetheart for nearly 38 years. Fluent in Japanese. Happy and well traveled. See details at http://www.sumoflam.biz/SumoflamBio.htm
