British Indian Ocean Territory

 

I suppose there will be two questions coming up immediately when reading this: Where is this place, and why is it mentioned here?

We are talking about a group of seven atolls between Tanzania and Indonesia under British rule. Says wikipedia. I never heard about it before.

And the Why? The statistics of my server keep telling me of several hundred hits from persons on these windswept or – more probably –sunbaked islands.

I find this amazing, and I’m happy to see that this blog reaches far into the world, to interesting and probably lonesome places.

Thank you, my unknown friends in the British Indian Ocean Territory!
