My brother in law mentioned in passing yesterday that the Kazakh city of Alma Ata is now called Almaty (it has been since 1993). I sort of think I may have already known this, but I decided to look it up on Wikipedia and now I know for sure.

I like these little topographic reminders. Lord knows I need them too. I didn’t know the difference between Barendrecht and Bunschoten, remember?
