About this T-Shirt

Pay attention class . . . This is not a T-shirt, it’s a geography lesson . . . Big sighs all round . . . Yes, I know, I too was deeply scarred by my geography teacher and put off the subject for life . . . but I bring you healing and joy and the wonder of knowledge . . . Well OK, it’s just a Tee (I especially like the romper suit version) . . . but effort has been expended, a challenge laid down . . .

Imagine that in your head sparkled the knowledge of the positions and names of all 34 coastal african ‘countries’ . . . It’s a lot easier than you might think . . . Geeks and geniuses please stand to one side (we’ll be joining you in a moment) . . . There are only 196 ‘countries’ [depends who you ask] in the world . . . Memorise the above and you will be more than one sixth of the way to mastering the entire globe. . . A complex field of interlocking irregular shapes is not easy to remember. A string of rhythmic words planted with images, stupid puns and cues to the next line is . . .
I am crossing my fingers here because only you can prove whether this word machine works or not . . .

Extra clear map below, with red ‘way-markers’ Gabon, Gambia and Libya.

p.s. Maps = politics. Something I have tried to avoid in this work (yes I know Cabinda and Western Sahara are disputed territories). One thing I will mention though is the food crisis right across the Sahel region. Draw a line from Mauritania to Somalia and almost every country it crosses is in desperate straits . . Our local financial crisis looks like a bad day at the office in comparison. Click here for the latest info and a chance to help in a small way.
