I Love Bridges

This narrow bridge crosses the Mississippi River, connecting Missouri and Illinois....

...specifically, Chester, Illinois. Home of Popeye!

Gerda, Elzie Segar, the creator of Popeye, was born and raised in Chester, Illinois. Several characters he created were based on experiences he had with people in Chester.

Nives, "Happy Birthday" messages like that, on marquees and such, are common here. Do you have that sort of thing in Croatia?
