On the last day of the year here’s my list.
Inhabitants of the 117 countries listed above found their way to this tiny, quiet little spot on the web. Wow, I had no idea… I think it’s great! thank you, I wish we could actually meet! 🙂
I studied the flags, the design, the colors, the meaning maybe? a few names spark an idea, a memory of sorts, a bit of information I picked up along the way.
South Korea, is that you Sunmi? How are you?? – Ghana, a great place to hide from cold winters – Papua New Guinea, I wrote about your Huli People, fabulous men! – A colleague moved to Myanmar, to start-up a car rental before they laid the roads – Ireland, careful not to get caught in the coach trail of roots seeking Americans and having to cue behind them in every other pub 😉 – United States, some really nasty characters are tucked away here, but also the birth ground of bright stars leading the way. Admiring it, disgusted by it, in short – Morocco, a world of scents and smells it seemed to me, a nose’s paradise – Russia, fascinating how it looks so much bigger on almost every map than it is in reality (read the post here) – India, I knew about the onion craze from experience but recently understood the effect of their love for the bulb vegetable on the Dutch economy through the Brexit roadblock at the harbor of Calais – it’s all connected.
But! A lot of countries I still know little of, and just seeing their tiny flags in my stats to me feels like an invitation, a conversation starter. I would love to know about all of these places, how is life with you?
A shout out to the one (and only) visitor from the British Virgin Islands, Guernsey, Moldova, Nepal, Bahamas, Myanmar and Mongolia – you are ahead of your countrymen, you found this spot first 🙂
