New flag from far away, and an old friend

 A surprise this morning...a new reader from far away in Kazakhstan, the 92nd on the roll of countries for Coffee with Clark. Little known here, the country is the largest landlocked country in the world, bigger than Western Europe, and only landlocked country int eh world to be in two continents, Europe and Asia. Part of the geography we were never taught, because it used to be part of the USSR.
And this week, other readers returned from very close, yet sometimes very far away culturally for us gringos, Mexico.
