Unexpected visitors

Edit >  Ok – this is an update of this post – the earlier one was only the last 30 days statistic. This is all-time hits. Quite a few more total visitors and quite a few more countries. </Edit

I had a friend of mine who works for the UN, stationed in the Sudan visit my blog today, so I thought I’d go take a look at the site stats and see where my visitors are coming from. Some of the numbers are not surprising at all, and others are quite surprising.

Countries I expected volume from are pretty obvious, but Saudi? Iraq? Nigeria? Trinidad? Wow! And that I had more visits from Sudan than from New Zealand? (Well, I know why I had more visits from Sudan, but still…) Now if I could only get a fraction of these folks to COMMENT! 😀

Manuel Murillo Toro, President of Colombia- Mathew Brady Studio, New York

Another recent acquisition. Manuel Murillo Toro, the President of Colombia from 1864-1866 and again from 1872-1874. Taken in the Mathew Brady New York studio. Probably the best-preserved Brady image I have. This image is most probably from the 1872-4 term, as he is labeled President of the United States of Colombia on the back. In his prior term as president, Colombia was known simply as Colombia.
