Only in Maine can you be within 100 miles of Naples, China, Peru, Mexico and Norway.

My friend (and talented photographer
) Josh Greenblatt took this great photo of a road sign in Maine that seems a little, well, off. Norway is 14 miles, Paris 15, Mexico just 37 miles and China is a short 94 miles.
Norway, Maine; Paris, Maine; Mexico, Maine; and China, Maine; that is. For some reason Maine's founding fathers liked naming their towns after other countries. There's also Poland, Sweden, Peru, and Naples (admittedly, not a country but still…).
