Saturday 22 September 2012: 50 down, 140 to go
Current location: the Philippines
- the Philippines is the world's largest producer of pineapples
- this is the 50th country I have visited, just short of my 30th birthday. Hoping for 100 by age 50, so I'll have to ramp up the rate
- on my 30th birthday I will be back here accompanying some auditors from the European Union as they audit our office
I never realised that the pineapple was so named because of its resemblance to a pine cone. Should have guessed.
