Interesting and intriguing! So many fascinating places around the world to see with some in small packages. Certainly cuts down on travel time within the country.

Recently the sixteen year old cat that owns me started her own country on my balcony, which she rules with a velvet paw. The capital is Catniptonia. In her spare time she is the Supreme Ruler of the World but likes her own country on the balcony for vacation time.

Wait til Jane finds this article and sees Vatican City...! See how long it takes for her to find it?
