Four New Countries and Relearning Geography

After a bit of a slow spell, in one week we have gotten four new countries to visit the farm:
Montenegro(meaning "Black Mountain" in Montenegrin);Algeria; andVenezuela.

This has caused me to visit these countries online. I admit to not knowing where Montenegro and Senegal were. I'm not sure if these two countries were named as they are today, with the same borders, when my Dad made me memorize all the countries and capitals as an elementary school girl.

Below are more of the sites I looked at:

Congrats on having so many diverse visitors! Montenegro was part of Yugoslavia...my husband and I lived in Macedonia (also part of former Yugoslavia) for two years. Montenegro has some of the most incredible beach/mountain scenery. It used to be very inexpensive to visit the beaches there...now, it's a yacht playground and one of the most expensive areas in Europe.

The closest I was to there was Slovenia, also part of Yugoslavia. I've heard about the coast along there. Put it on my list...
