>Travel one trail to many places.
>Ever tried to make it to a friend following his 
>instructions? »Go there... turn left... turn 
>right... hey look up it's me in the window...« 
>Ever had the feeling that the path so clear to 
>your friend was in fact very very ambiguous and 
>you could reach several different endpoints 
>following the very same trail of instructions?
>
>
>Make a choice on every corner.
>This is exactly what SYNCHRONI-CITIES is about. 
>This project is bringing together the 
>multiplicity and cultural diversity of different 
>places. It is based on the idea of international 
>exploration, dialogue and unity.
>
>
>Find familiar areas in different cities.
>This is a kind of game which is shaped as an 
>urban exploration quest based on the idea of 
>creating »synonymous places«. It gives urban 
>communities the opportunity to engage in an 
>intercultural dialogue that simultaneously 
>stresses upon identity and openness.
>
>
>Show your point of view.
>So pick a trail. Follow it, and take some 
>pictures or even videos on your way. Upload it, 
>compare them to trails done by others and wonder 
>how people could be in all those different 
>places following the very same instructions. 
>Rate the trails you like. Your trails will be 
>rated, as well. Win a prize! Then explore more 
>trails.

>Pick, upload, rate and find more info on
