A host sister, South Africa, and the reality of Google Maps

It’s so obvious! How did I never see it before?

Today was a pretty interesting day. My sister just back from her trip to Swaziland about a week and a half ago (for those of you who don’t know, Swaziland is a small country in South Africa (well, right on the edge, really, but it’s complicated)). And today we picked up our host sister from Swaziland who will be staying with us for the next week. Yay for internationality! She’s very nice and I’m glad to have her around. I just hope that living in our house won’t give her some sort of skewed representation of America (though it probably will). This is also very interesting because, according to google maps Equestria happens to be located in South America. Our host sister didn’t mention this, and I am very disappointed. However, I am now obligated to travel there in order to visit the marshmallow ponies. Although I have to admit I’m surprised at google. I mean, I knew they were all-powerful and all, but being able to pin-point the location of mystical realms? Still can’t locate Gensokyo, though. Apparently Yukari’s border is just too powerful. It did seem to find Komachi right here in America, though.

That’s pretty much all for now. Enjoy my silly quickly-captioned image.
