About Costa Rica, Nicaragua, their mutual border, and Google | Ogle Earth. (via)

Nicaragua did not mistakenly enter Costa Rican territory because it relied on Google Maps. Ortega’s justification for Nicaragua’s actions appeal to documents from the 19th century; Pastora’s mention of Google Maps is just a taunt.

This whole thing, after going to Nicaragua last winter, makes me wonder:

Is there a (preferably German) word for the residual interest/affection you feel about places you’ve visited only for a short time?

“Nostalgia” is too yearn-y and past-oriented. It’s more like wanting to be in touch with the Now that you’re missing over there.
