Lesotho, Benin, Bhutan.
Do you know what these words represent? I wouldn’t either prior to my internet search today.
They are countries. Yep. Real countries on Earth, not fictional countries in the Star Wars galaxy.
Lesotho is a country in the southern portion of Africa with a beautiful landscape, according to http://www.listofcountriesoftheworld.com. Over two million people live in this country, landlocked and completely surrounded by South Africa. Benin is a small country in West Africa wedged between Togo and Nigeria. Primarily a French-speaking country, over nine million people live in Benin. Between China and India, you’ll find Bhutan. Over seven hundred thousand people live in Bhutan. Its national sport is archery.
According to the website, there are 191 countries that are “not disputed.” How many can you name? Better yet, how many can you find on a map?
Would you be able to fill out a blank map of the world?
I am going to attempt this feat and let you know how I do. I’m sure it won’t be pretty. I probably will get stuck in Europe, never mind the gobbly-gook splatter of land in Southeast Asia. At least I can now spot Lesotho on that map.
Is it just me, or are you, too, geographically-challenged? Maybe I can help educate us all, and once in awhile post some facts about a little known country. I could make it interesting for all of us. Let me know what you think.
Thanks for reading!
