Countryside

Ah, the Austrian countryside, where placenames can be surprisingly... well, topographic. Hardly, however, do they appear as densely as here, where you get directions to "big mound", "round village" (or "wrestling village", if you're very literal), "upper ditch" and "lower ditch". It would seem that the mound and the ditches may be the direct cause of each other.

Then there's Thermal, California. Need I say more?

I was recently in Virginia (very near the Washington, DC metro area), and I picked up from the hotel lobby one of those not-very-detailed maps showing the town centers of nearby places one might be visiting - one of the towns was named Round Hill; I immediately thought of this post. :-)
