Every two weeks we will pick a country to highlight and learn about. This idea came about after reading the book, "Maphead" by Ken Jennings. If there was one thing we took from that book is the importance of learning about other countries, other places around the world. 

So we thought, why not pick a random country, do a bit of research and showcase it. So come back every couple of weeks to see what country we highlight next and learn a bit about a magical place that you may or may not know much about.
