Tonight I have been thinking about countries and maps. As I hear the news from around the world I always picture where countries are on the map. I am pretty good at knowing where most countries are, but still have a little trouble with Africa.
Above is a map of all the countries where I have had visits from. You can see that there are not too many big gaps in the map.
Here are some of the countries that have only one of two all-time views. For some of these countries I really have to think to come up with where they are.
In all I have visits from 210 countries/regions. Back in 2012 I had visits from only 76 countries. There are not too many more places that I can get visits from. Most are in Africa, but there is also North Korea to watch for and perhaps a few island nations.
Keeping an eye on the blog stats has definitely helped me improve my knowledge of Geography. It even helped with a Geography question one night.
Of course we are also seeing a lot of maps in the news during the last month as we watch the spread of COVID-19.
