If It Were My Home...

We're quickly realizing that six weeks in Colombia will not be long enough. Just the same as when we spent four weeks in South Korea, and South Korea is a lot smaller than Colombia.

I came across an interesting website the other day that compares various statistics from all the different countries in the world. Interesting stuff!

It's called "If It Were My Home". As an example, I've input the comparison between the U.S., and Colombia...


Of course the statistics are all generalities, but it's still an interesting comparison. And the mapping perspective is interesting too!

Area of Colombia compared to the United States.

A good deal on your own in home blood pressure monitor...today only...

Want an expensive pair of binoculars? These are $1,200 in the States, so at $1,375 Canadian it's actually a good deal!


  1. One of my favorite header pictures!

    1. Yes, it is one of our all time favourite photos!

  2. 8.4 times likely to be murdered!!!!! Sounds very dodgy place to visit. ..will be following you both with interest

    1. As I said, the statistics (although correct) are all generalities. And of course, 8.4 times nothing is still...nothing.
