It's amazing how much life changes over time. This weekend we moved into our new place. For the full report, check out Amanda's blog. Anyway, new apartment = new commute. I started to get curious and decided to check out Google Maps to see all of the different places I've lived and what they look like from the air. I suppose its like googling your friends and family, only this time it's with your own house.
What I found interesting about it is how much everything looks the same. Here's a composite of every place I've ever lived. It includes 2 different states, 2 different countries, 4 different major metropolitan areas ... and yet everything just looks like a big concrete mush from space. Well, everything except for rural Pennsylvania.
But, for the most part, even though these things were taken from all over the world, they pretty much look as though they could have all come from within the same town.
So much for wanting to get out, see the world, and experience its diversity. ; )
