Also in My Zip Code

While changing the settings last night on my weather widget, I discovered the following cities share the same zip code as the neighborhood I live in in Washington, D.C. They are:

Hamburg, Germany
Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain
Cuggiono, Italy
Keelung City, Taiwan
Aguascalientes, Mexico*
Errostina, Greece
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Lublin, Poland
Nakuru, Kenya

Who knew?

* My favorite. If I've translated correctly, from what very, very little Spanish I know, it means "hot waters."

Aguascalientes is indeed a cool name. There's a town in Mexico just across the border from Douglas, Arizona, called Agua Prieta, or Dark Water. I think it's quite a beautiful name.

Holly: I thought so, too. And Agua Prieta is also pretty. One of these days, I have to take Spanish classes....
