The Statue of Liberty is the perfect example of how the USA sure knows how to market its country and everything that is produced in it!
Not wanting to undermine the statue and its historical meaning, I must say that a first visit to this iconic construction can be quite disappointing. After watching so many movies that include aerial views of Lady Liberty, one expects its erection to be bigger and certainly more grandiose.
Perhaps my visual expectations were too high and definitely highly fed by Hollywood. But this just proves once again how the USA has that, sometimes amazing, sometimes irritating capacity, of taking anything, market the hell out of it and make the whole world want it!
