Modern Geography Lesson

Do you know where the Faroe Islands are?

Me neither, until I saw it listed on the blog FlagCounter tracker (see the link in the left hand column of the blog) .

Located somewhere between Iceland and Norway, FlagCounter.com lists:

"...The population of the Faroe Islands is largely descended from Viking settlers who arrived in the 9th century. The islands have been connected politically to Denmark since the 14th century. A high degree of self government was granted the Faroese in 1948, who have autonomy over most internal affairs, while Denmark is responsible for justice, defense, and foreign affairs. The Faroe Islands are not part of the European Union."

Geography is much more interesting this way.

You know you've arrived when your blog has infiltrated the Faroe Islands. I can only hope to do the same one day.

Now you can argue when people say Americans don't know geography. Thanks to you, I can too.
