Something I've been wondering, and repeatedly asked by various people, is how big Trinidad is versus San Francisco. In London the equivalent question was easier, since I knew Trinidad fitted roughly inside the M25. I'd never seen a comparison with San Francisco, so tonight -- feeling a little under the weather, with not much else to do -- I made one myself:
It turns out they are roughly the same size: my daily commute from SF to Sunnyvale carries me across most of the country.
In other map geekery, I am
only 243 miles further away from 243 miles closer to Trinidad than I used to be:
- SF -> Trinidad = 6738km (4187mi)
- London -> Trinidad = 7130km (4430 mi)
- and SF -> London = 8630km (5362mi)
Update: I can't do math, apparently.
