{199 Countries Visited - Welcome Sao Tome and Principe + Update}

Well, I missed my 198th country; no clue which one it was but JUST by chance I noticed there was a difference and yes, we're now to 199 total. 
Welcome Sao Tome and Principe!
SAO TOME AND PRINCIPE and info of this small island nation in central Africa.
The smallest country in Africa, just north of the Equator. Click the above link to find out more.
Once more: thank you so much for visiting my humble blog and for all your comments!
October so far is lovely, even with its unexpected cooler start during the first weekend.
Temperatures of 32°C for the entire weekend.
Nice weather for Columbus Day on October 12 and celebrated on the 13th.
You will also be able to start reading about our Arizona trip on October 23rd.
Wishing everyone in the USA a happy Columbus weekend and all else a happy new week!

      Well, I just by chance noticed this 199th and wanted to grab it; just in case I ever change that 1 into a 2...
      Sao Tome and Principe seems to be a tiny island and thus the smallest country in Africa.
      Sorry, I had the title wrong at first; had not checked it in time because I had PC problems today. A couple of crashes but got it sorted out.
      Hugs and love from Georgia to Japan from your American friend.

      Love the way you always phrase things! First time I hear this expression: 'waiting on pins and needles.'
      Indeed, one wonders which tiny countries nowadays join in cyberspace!

  12. Statistiken habe ich mir schon lange nicht mehr angeschaut, liebe Mariette, dafür fehlte bislang immer die Zeit. Aber im Winter komme ich sicherlich auch einmal wieder dazu.
    Ich freue mich jedenfalls für Dich für Deine Besucher aus aller Welt!

    Liebe Grüße auch hier

      This was a funny number and wondering which country will be # 200...
      Here it is very dreary looking today with rain! We loved the sunny weather with the low humidity very much. Sure we want to keep that for a while longer.
