Country of the Week

My knowledge of other contries and their culture, politics, geography, etc., is pretty bad, so my wife and myself decided to try something – every week, we’re going to pick a country, and try to learn something about it.

The only way to do this, of course, is with technology, so I created this very simple website that every week will present a new country, with a couple of simple links.

You can have a look at the Country of the Week page – it’s awfully minimal, maybe I’ll add new links once I can find sources for information about “every” country..

It’s completely random (but it will go through all 267 countries before starting over), and the first country it picked is Western Sahara. I didn’t even know this was a country; now I know there’s a quarter million nomads living there with less than two thousand phone lines for the entire country.
