Countries contacted included Belgium, Brazil, Egypt, England, Germany, Greece, Guyana, Malta, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Oman, Panama, Peru, Switzerland, and the USA. We also had an online bingo game, with participants finding out about different countries through their websites. We have mapped some of our contacts on this map.
