Day 98: Havre

Today I passed through:

  2. Devon
  3. Galata
  4. Lothair
  5. Chester

  10. Gildford
  11. Kremlin

    So perhaps you are wondering why so many places? Well, it turns out that each of these places was founded because of the railroad during the days of steam when coal and water were required at regular intervals. Apparently the method adopted for choosing the names was to spin a globe and the point at which a finger stopped the globe determined the place's name.
