Both cities are big metropolises now, and international, but both have retained in their psyches traces of their beginnings. I'm a Sydney girl through and through and proud of it.

    Yep, I know Sears. And I've been in both Gary and Hammond. But don't remember them much, sorry. For many years I had very close friends in central Illinois, and we would often drive over to the East coast to visit other friends - usually stopped at Terre Haute or somewhere round there on the way.
