I love to travel as it is inspiring and gives so much insight into so many aspects of our world, life, culture and societies. One nice linking aspect I found recently when traveling around Asturias – a principality in northern Spain – came to my mind when I explored some rural sites where hórreos (from Latin horreum) where shown, which are storehouses for grain.
My brain made the immediate linkage to the “Chocolate Sandwich Cookies” branded “Oreo” phonetically. When looking it up in Wikipedia the article says, that the origin of the name isn’t known. Maybe it is derived from Orreo, as cookies contain (store) grain as well and the old Portuguese form of hórreos is “orreo” … who knows …?
