Today’s Geography Lesson

Most recent map for today.

Most recent map for today.

Sitting at home, working on the computer, and listening to nearby church bells ring. Meanwhile my mom sent an email that mentioned:

Had to look up one of the countries on the list!  Everyone’s getting a geography lesson!

I decided a geography lesson wasn’t a bad idea.

I’ve included maps of the places most Americans probably can’t find on an unlabeled map.  I realize that the names of several of these countries have changed in the lifetimes of both my mom and me.  We learned different names when we were in school — so now is a great time to brush up!

I’d had to look up Burundi myself this morning. It boarders Tanzania (where I’ve been twice!?!). It’s to the northwest of TZ. It’s just below Rwanda and is very small.
