Oestrich-Winkel - the center of the world :)

Not many people have heard of Oestrich-Winkel yet, but as you can see here, there's a connection to the rest of the world :). Might be the travel itiniary of the family living in the house...

So far I see only one Daily Photo Blog city on that list (New York). Let's see if this has changed in a few months/a year...

Wonder if they will ever put Akita City on it! Nahh, unlikely..,not a famous city.

you're a good challenger, nicola ;-) every city is a center of the world, don't you think? :-D

midnitebara - I'm afraid they won't - there's no A in Oestrich-Winkel...

maya - of course you're right ;). It just depends from where you're looking at it :)

Really nice! Good catch there. I wish we could see those cities in the daily blog community. My 2 first favorite ones: Shanghai and Istanbul, but Tokyo is really close behind ;)

Great find! What is the real reason for putting this up though?

lorraine, ash, jill, ggraph - thank you for your comments!!

karine - yes, those could all be really fascinating photo blogs. We'll have to wait and see...

jide - thanks for visiting and commenting! This happens actually a lot since the names sound and look quite similar. :)

ali - I don't know the reason behind it. My guess is that the owners wanted to make the wall look more interesting and combine it with their passion for travelling, maybe.

dustin - I guess I should have highlighted it a bit.

I lived in this little town while going to school for a semester at the European Business School. I arrived with my bicycle thinking I could get around with it. Little did I know that O-E was on the top of a hill and the first three weeks we were there it rained the whole time. We ended up buying a Fiat from the neighbors across the street. Paid way to much for a car that had two horizontal poles with a sling between them that served as a backseat. Good times! Oh to be a college student in Europe!
