Well, well, well, I hadn’t really imagined this day coming so soon:
The A year of streets project is complete.
Woo hoo. Every now and then, I’d get an email from somebody – one of you, in fact – telling me of a street here or there, then, last week, a chap called Paul sent about fifty of them, which more or less got the project to the halfway point. Spurred on by this, my pal Jacqueline and I sat down at her kitchen table, laptops sucking down an unprotected Wi-Fi connection in the neighbourhood, and Google Maps being constantly typed into and refreshed, searching for variations of each date in different languages. It took a while. And this morning, I finished it off. You’d think I’d be over the moon, but – damn my head – now I’m wondering what other pointless obsession I can develop.
So, yes, I just wanted to say a great big thank you to everyone who helped out. Thank you. And thank you to Mexico for having so many streets named after dates.
