The 189th country to visit my Blog comes from JERSEY.
Thanks for visiting and numbering the countries that have visited my Blog.
Let's see and learn something about JERSEY:
Jersey (jûr'zē), island (2005 est. pop. 90,800), 45 sq mi (117 sq km), in the English Channel, largest of the Channel Islands, which are dependencies of the British crown. It is 15 mi (24 km) from the Normandy coast of France and SE of Guernsey. Saint Helier, the capital, is on St. Aubin's Bay. The mild climate (plants requiring
subtropical conditions grow without protection), the moderate rainfall
(30–35 in./76–89 cm), and the scenery have contributed to make Jersey,
like other Channel Islands, a vacation resort. The soil is generally
fertile, and large quantities of vegetables (especially potatoes,
tomatoes, and broccoli) and fruits are raised. Cattle raising and
dairying (Jersey cattle) are also important, as is light industry. The
inhabitants are mostly of Norman descent; English, French, and a Norman
dialect are spoken. The Jersey Zoological Park was founded in 1959 to
protect endangered animals.
Industries: Financial services, tourism, market gardening, and dairy farming
are important industries.
