This time is Yamaguchi prefecture.

Why do we make fun of the fact that so many places in the Middle East have names ending in “-stan”, anyway?

The suffix “-stan” just means “land [of]”.

Do you know how many places in Europe have names that end in “-land”?

England, Scotland, Ireland, Poland, Finland, Holland, Switzerland, the Netherlands - hell, even Germany’s native moniker is “Deutschland”.

Outside of Europe (and considering only those regions with predominantly white populations), you’ve got Iceland and New Zealand, plus sub-national regions like Queensland (Australia), Newfoundland (Canada), Greenland (part of Denmark), and so forth.

That’s a whole lotta “-land”s.

Bit of a double standard, innit?

Pretty happy with how English went this morning, but geography is tomorrow and I’m terrified. But hey let’s just merrily doddle great headers and banners for everything and pretend I’m way more prepared than I really am.

But I’m back in the haven of my family garden and my auntie invited me round to dinner so all is fine.
