We live in Medina, OH. a small city south of Cleveland. In 2008 we were on a trip to Scandinavia and were in Stockholm. We decided to go to the Absolut Ice Bar. While enjoying our drinks out of ice cups, a couple overheard us talking and asked if we were from the U.S. We replied yes and they asked where we were from. Normally I just say, "Thirty miles south of Cleveland." But
my husband said, "Medina." The man said, "Oh, I've been to Medina several times." I said, "Get out of here! What were you doing in Medina?" He explained that he and the woman he was with worked for Gevalia Coffee Company and that Plastipac in Medina made their packaging. This is just one of several times we have had an encounter like that when traveling in foreign countries.
