No, I'm not talking about the city in Saudi Arabia, but rather about a town in Ohio, located about twenty miles to the south of where I live. While Alejandro was here for a visit, we took a drive down to Medina.
Medina has a population of about 26,000 people, and is the seat of the county of the same name. It was founded in 1818 by New Englanders as a settlement of the Western Reserve, a section of northeastern Ohio that was originally claimed by the state of Connecticut. The town was laid out in typical New England fashion with a village green in the center.
