Geography R Us The verdict is in, Americans do not know Geography, and by the way, either does any of the people from other countries. We are all about the same, we all use some form of tunnel vision that sees only what interest us, and we ignore the rest of the world Geography.
Our life experiences is what teaches geography, yes some countries study geography of the planet more than others, and a person that reads National Geographic Magazine has education that is better.
Geography curiosity, or curiosity of Geography. Hmmm, that is about worthless, the pivotal things is to have a curiosity about people, then you are curious about Geography. I guess a people watcher, a person that can go to a big mall; sit on the bench, just muse about people endlessly would be a good candidate to be good at Geography. Why spend days studying maps unless you want to know about the people.
I am in a constant state of amusement as I coordinate with my techie the Boy Genius Techie in India to put code on our HoboHideOut.com Hotel site. Here is person that somewhat dwells on the USA culture, however somehow just does put much value in a State of the USA.

Ooops where is Indiana, I mean, how can I go look at a map of Indiana or just a blank page waiting for Indiana Maps to appear, or some automated Google Earth Maps. Somehow the state of Indiana is not there, but we have put most of the smallest villages possible, but no Indiana.
The tunnel was made, the dictate passed down be the big ME. - WE are making a Hotel site of… every CITY in the World.! -
I did, I made the tunnel, I put my 10 dollars on the table and said, this site will have every Hotel in the planet, and every city in the planet, and I demanded that we create a way to collect a hotel in the smallest place imaginable. And not only this, I am demanding a way to say, if a person in a house wants to rent a room to Swedish Girls, they should be able to place this on the site, and compete neck and neck with the Five Star Resort.
I have made the tunnel, Boy Genius is looking through the tunnel, and his vision is Tunnel, it is Tunnel Vision as they say. He is thinking CITY, this is the Tunnel I made.
I suppose we had to do it, we had to go to the smallest before we could back up and say, lets look out the window at the State of Indiana as we pass onto the smallest little city of Superboy, the Smallville USA, the Village in Laos, up in the mountains, nobody stops but some old Military Truck full of Rice Farmers.
Every city deserves favor… I truly believe the small cities of a county are the lifeblood of a country. The are the identifiers of people. I do not believe if I go to Germany and stay in Frankfurt, I am seeing German culture, yes a form. If I want to find out who Germany is, I must go down to the smallest of Gods people and say, - Hello, I am Andy, what is your name? -
Where is the smallest of Gods people, in Smallville USA, they are in Germany in the village of… DARN, I cannot remember how to spell the village in Germany I visited. That place where the Grocery Store closes at 6:00 pm and all is quiet, just a few corner bars. This is the problem with HoboHideOut.com, today, not tomorrow, or the future, but today we are in a tunnel of design, If I know the exact name, the state, the county a person can find their city, this is not how a person travels though and not the only path, but a good path if you know 100 percent where you are going, not likely…
I found it, the village of Seitingen a place where I found Germany, it is on the site of HoboHideOut.com… hehehe, but for sure, only the makers of the site know how to travel the tunnels and paths to this village. If you go to this German Village, I hope to help you find a room, and say Hello to Sabine, my German friend I met in Ecuador, in a nowhere place, on a beach, Smallville, USA, nobody cares, but yes, someone cares, I do.
My Germany, the German people I want to know, the people I know live here. Seitingen Germany
I am having fun, making my dream of finding a room in a small village in Germany Hotel site. Because I want to go to the small places, and say, - Hello, I am Andy, what is your name? -
I need a way to find a room to sleep.
Ok, the bottom line though Geography is the core or HoboHideOut.com, we must show easy paths to find the smallest of the smallest and allow a person who knows nothing about Geography and could care less, how to find the great Uncle living in Ireland, and find a room… EASY, if it was easy, everyone would make these Mega sites, instead they just give me the Five Stars off the top, and forge the cream, the small cities where a boy like me was born.
Google.com is winning because everyone is allowed to play, and Yahoo.com is losing because the said, no, only if you pay, only if you give us money, only if this, too many rules, the basic fundamental profit model that works on the internet is… - A site that helps all helps the site to thrive. - This has been Yahoo.com problem, the reason why Google.com gets about 80 percent of search traffic, Google.com allows all to enter, and does not just say no, Yahoo.com started to want 300 dollars more or less per entry, and they wrote their doom check.
I suppose you get the minds of the smallest, the rest must follow.
