Blog readers in 148 countries

I'm always astounded that my blog attracts readers--or they stumble across it--from so many countries in the world. 
In May, readers from five new countries clicked on these pages, bringing my blog visitation register to 149 countries total. Countries and dates someone visited the blog:
5-3--Benin








5-9--Senegal



5-10--Anguilla

5-11-South Sudan







 

5-18--Paraguay. 

That brings to a total of 25 countries in Africa, 12 in South America, and 11 in the Caribbean.
I love seeing these facts show up and delving into the maps, histories and flags of these countries. It's a continuing education in geography for me. And it always sparks my imagination about the readers and their lives, as well as my wanderlust to travel, especially to places like Anguilla and white sandy beaches.
Also note that the flags reflect the different histories and in these cases the colonization if these countries, French, Spanish and English.
Where I've had other readers on these continents and regions:
Africa--Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Togo, Ghana, Ethiopia,  Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, Nigeria, Tunisia, Gabon, South Africa, Mali, Mauritus, Mauritania, Cameroon, Angola, Botswana, Zambia, Mozambique, Benin, Senegal, South Sudan,
South America--Colombia, Peru, Chile, Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Bolivia, Paraguay.
Caribbean--Caymans,  Sint Maartin, Trinidad and Tobago, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, The Bahamas, Netherlands Antilles, St. Kitts and Nevis, Bermuda, Anguilla
