Podunk, NY, is a hamlet in the town of Ulysses (which is about 45 minutes from Geneva). Podunk and Ulysses are just two examples of the many, many interesting place names around here. Ever heard of Canandaigua? As a Canadian, I always hesitate when I pronounce this one. Cana-what? Geneva isn’t the only city to be named after a European or Mediterranean counterpart either. Not far down the road you’ll find Rome and Jerusalem. Seriously.
Some people have suggested that we should buy a GPS device for our car. If we bought a GPS, then we would miss all the fun of looking at the map and discovering these little place names along the way!
