First view of Scotland … and a quiz
We came down fast thru the clouds and I caught my first glimpse of Scotland! I was a bit reluctant to consider this as my country #52 because in the UN, Scotland is represented as part of the UK. However, internet would have you believe that Scotland (like Wales for example) is a country unto itself and the UK is a union. Which goes to show that there is no water tight definition of what makes a country, a country, I guess.
Here is a quiz question for all of you… I am trying to remember which i2 colleague of mine from UK had taught me this…
Which is bigger – Great Britain or the UK? What is the difference between the two? And what is the difference between those and the British Isles?
