Where the Streets Have No Name

Who knew? Apparently U2 must have been talking about Managua, Nicaragua.

Venezuela is the same way, which makes it interesting to have a telecom/Internet business operating there--customer addresses are descriptions similar to those in the article about Managua.

Actually, I guess it's just parts of Venezuela that are that way--at least some parts of Caracas have street addresses, but the center of the city only has markers/names for street corners (esquinas), and addresses are identified as being located between two street corners.

You made me think of my song A Horse with No Name, by my group America. "I been through the city where the streets have no name." Now, if you'd take the time to finish the lyrics, I give permission to adapt them to my music. Go for it!
