Why does the most recent country to hit my Champloo Archive sound like a fancy cocktail or a bad fanfiction title?

Photobucket

I've never heard of this country but, then again, I've never heard of Djibouti (Africa), the Faroe Islands (near Iceland) or Macao (Asia) either. I've learned a lot about geography since attaching that widget to my website. ^_^

P.S. St. Vincent of the Grenadines is in the Caribbean.

This is kinda irrelevant to the post... it's just I was looking at recipes tonight and there was one called "Green Bean Grenadine" LOL

Hooray for the Caribbean! XD I'd never heard of that place either.

Hee hee! Small world. :D

I've always been a tequila drinker, and grenadine is what makes a Sunrise pretty. That's what I associate the word with.

*nodnod* that's the only use I knew of for it. That's why when I came across that recipe I was like "wwhaaa?" lol XD

Can't blame you; I would have said that was made up too.

It's got to be the cutest name for a country I've ever heard. :D

8D And a very nice country it is, too, I hear; lots of little jewel-like islands. I was in next-door Grenada for a too-short visit and really regret that I didn't have enough time/cojones regarding transportation in the Caribbean to get one of the teeny flights over. (I love Grenada -- you've got pink and white and black sand beaches, sometimes less than five minutes' walk from each other, and you can tour a working nutmeg warehouse that smells like heaven. Unfortunately, Grenada is also the place where I figured out I'm too much a polar bear to stay in warm for long, but I'd visit again in a shot.) /Caribbean nerd :D

Go you, Ms. World Traveler! I've never been further south than Key West, but me and the tropics don't get along. I can picture sipping umbrella drinks on a pink beach though. That sound luverly!

imho, it sounds like an interesting slash possibility. Care to explore?

I'm always amazed at the worldwide appeal of anime, and Champloo in particular. Folks from 147 countries have visited my archive.

Sounds like the name of a band from the mid-60s. I'm imagining Nehru jackets and Beatle boots. Very groovy, baby, yeah!

OMG, you're so right! A totally perfect 60's band name. How fab! :DDD

If you watched Athletics meetings you'd heard of them, at least that's how I know of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.XD

And to further improve your geography knowledge: Macao is not an independent country, it's a region of China, formerly belonging to Portugal much like Hong Kong belonged to the UK, both were exchanged back in the late 90's; and the Faroe Islands are also not independent, they belong to Denmark, as does Greenland.:P
