We are signing off today with this nice one. It is late in Lagos, 10pm. Call it a blurb, sure, too short but we saw the map of South Sudan and were touched.
Google worked with the World Bank, UNOSAT, and RCMRD and some Sudanese in diaspora to map the young nation that became independent on July 9th. What a nice shape. Did you notice it? What does it look like? Hope!
We continue to congratulate the people of Sudan and we thank Google for getting this out.
This is how Wikipedia captured it and it seemed to be how it is there
