So, due to the vagaries of the Internets and perhaps due to my compelling photos of hot dogs, web surfers from almost every significant country in Europe, as well as some of the small ones (looking at you Montenegro), have viewed this blog. The two major laggards: Greece and Belarus.
Because I know you care, I will periodically keep you informed as to whether anyone from the sun-drenched Hellas or sleeting White Russia has visited this site. To the first visitor from either or both of those countries who posts a comment here and subsequently e-mails me their address, I promise to send them a postcard from lovely Dushanbe. Tajik Post might lose it, but I promise to mail it.
In related news, thanks to the people behind our 17 unique visits from Latvia, the most, by far, on a per capita basis for any country. I haven’t been there since 1994, unless you count three recent layovers in Riga airport, but if the Latvian love keeps coming, that may have to change.
