When I put the flag counter up I imagined that visits to this blog would probably be from a dozen countries at most. I am surprised, delighted and humbled to see visits from 51 countries in seven days. Hopefully, not all of them arrived here by accident!
Well, all are very welcome here and it is a special delight to see the countries of the East so well represented too. It's wonderful that an arcane interest can extend, be shared and enjoyed beyond national boundaries without politicians interfering. That is the liberating power of the blog and the internet. Long may it continue.
BTW if you go to flagcounter.com and click on a country you will see a page of useful information about it, including its geography, people, government, economy, communications, transport and military.
