While enjoying Aerial America on the Smithsonian Channel, I’ve mused about what we call ourselves in each of these 50 connected, yet vastly different, United States.
That led to musing about what residents in parts of other countries call themselves, and what names they give the demarcations that form legal, interior boundaries.
I know Canada has provinces.. I think Mexico has states, and Italy has regions. Beyond that I’m ignorant. When I comment to across-the-pond blogging buddies, I don’t even know whether they call their country England or Great Britain, let alone what interior demarcations the countries of the United Kingdom use.
Sure, I could Google this. But wouldn’t it be fun to hear from you – either in comments here, or in a post of your own – helping me fill in some blanks?
Without any of us checking Google?
