FOLLOWING ORANGES IN OLDENBURG

After renting a bicycle we went to get oranges at the local distributor, to trace the last bit that the fruit travels in Oldenburg. The animation below gives an impression of the last bit to the Edith Russ Haus.


The last journey by bike was 6 kilometers. The oranges at this time of year comes from South Africa. This means that they have been underway at least one month by boat. This is also why it is practically impossible to have organic oranges at this time of year as most of them would rot if they were not treated chemically.


The distributor mapped the
way of oranges on one of the
wrappers
 
At other times oranges in Olden-
burg are imported from mainly
Spain, Morocco or California.
