Vocês viram que há pouco mais de um mês eu instalei um aplicativo que verifica de que lugares do mundo vêm os visitantes desse blog? É o último item desse menu que vocês veem à direita. Basta clicar no mapa (ou aqui) para vê-lo em tamanho maior.
Poupando-lhes trabalho, aqui vai o mapa:
A maior concentração é no Brasil, obviamente. Dos Estados Unidos, países europeus, Japão e Austrália vêm quase todas as demais visitas. Mas vamos falar de África.
Da África, tenho apenas quatro visitas: duas de Angola e duas de Cabo Verde. O que não é um absurdo, visto que estes são dois dos seis países africanos que falam português (os demais são Guiné-Bissau, Guiné Equatorial, Moçambique e São Tomé e Principe).
Pois acabo de criar um desafio para mim: QUERO UM VISITANTE DA NAMÍBIA. Escolhi um país de baixa popularidade, que talvez só seja mais conhecido mundialmente por causa do corredor Frankie Fredericks.
Abaixo, escrevi um monte de baboseiras relacionadas a esportes, política, educação, geografia e cultura da Namíbia para tentar atrair algum namibiano (ou namíbio) pelo GOOGLE. Vocês, brasileiros, ignorem. Se eu futuramente tiver algum visitante da Namíbia, escrevo um post novo para avisá-los.

The name of the country is derived from the Namib Desert, considered to be the oldest desert in the world. The dry lands of Namibia were inhabited since early times by Bushmen, Damara, Namaqua, and since about the 14th century AD, by immigrating Bantu who came with the Bantu expansion from central Africa. he first Europeans to disembark and explore the region were the Portuguese navigators Diogo Cão in 1485 and Bartolomeu Dias in 1486; still the region was not claimed by the Portuguese crown. In response to the 1966 ruling by the International Court of Justice, South-West Africa People’s Organisation (SWAPO) military wing, People’s Liberation Army of Namibia, a guerrilla group began their armed struggle for independence, but it was not until 1988 that South Africa agreed to end its occupation of Namibia, in accordance with a United Nations peace plan for the entire region.

The Vodacom Cup is an annual rugby union competition in South Africa which is contested between February and May. The Cup is the third-tier competition in rugby union in South Africa, behind Super Rugby and the Currie Cup. It runs at roughly the same time as Super Rugby and serves as an important developmental competition for South African rugby. It was first held in 1998, and was won in its first year by Griqualand West. The competition also featured invitational teams from outside the country – the Welwitschias from Namibia played in the competition between 1999 and 2001 and then rejoined in 2010, along with the Pampas XV from Argentina. The Pampas XV play in the competition’s Southern Section, while the Welwitschias play in the Northern Section.
