Let's go to the United States!

I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,
Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong,
The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,
The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work,
The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deck-hand singing on the steamboat deck ...
The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work, or of the girl sewing or washing,
Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else …

-- Walt Whitman

We have spent a lifetime, nearly three quarters of a century now, exploring the U.S., East to West, and North to South, and we've only scratched the surface.

Diversity in its every form is the hallmark of the land, but I'll not be so bold as to challenge Walt's description above.
