As I'm leaving Massachusetts I want share with you my way of remembering how to pronounce the name of this beautiful but unpronounceable state.
Remember Pikachu? From Pokémon? Well, it starts very similar, but instead of "Pika" you say "Masa". And then? Then you just say "sets", like in "the sun sets".
That's all - "Massa-chu" and then "setts".
Had a lovely time, thanks!
Here I come, New York!
