Ola Brazil! Hello Switzerland!

One of the nice things about WordPress is that it shows the countries people are in when they read this blog. The result for about 7 months of this blog is below. Somewhat to my surprise, Brazil is in 4th place. Hello nice people from Brazil! At the other end of the spectrum, in 7 months only a single post has been viewed from Tunisia. Hope I haven’t offended my one Tunisian reader.

Having thought about a bit I think the only reason I am surprised about Brazil’s position is that it is far away. Given that distances don’t matter on the internet this is a bit silly. I should be more surprised by Switzerland’s position at number 3, despite a population 40 times lower than Brazil. So hello nice people in Switzerland! If you want to say hi, from Brazil, Switzerland or elsewhere you are very welcome, comments are open below.

The views are split roughly 50/50 between the UK and the rest of the world. On University open days for prospective students I often say that science is international. This appears to be true. Anyway, views broken down by country as follows:
