Empathizing with a river

On Wednesday, my blog got 76 hits on a post I wrote nearly two years ago, about the Zambezi River.

My blog averages 60-70 hits a day during the school year and has been down to about 25 hits a day so far this summer — when I’ve not been blogging much and folks are recovering from a school year.

So a day with more than 100 hits kind of stands out:

I looked back at the post that accounted for most of that traffic, and it makes some good points — both about using Google Earth for empathy and about how we neglect Africa in our world history curriculum.

I made a few edits to the post, so it reads a bit more cleanly.  If you’re interested, click here.
