I quoted more information directly from the CIA Factbook, and the lady who sold the doll suggested it was not appropriate, with the following email so I deleted it. I see the exchange of dolls as a way to further our understanding of each other, and hope she sees my posting her letter as itself appropriate.

Dolls of the World

I have just begun this page to share information about my own new international doll collection and to organize data about dolls of the world.

Contribute to my page, please. I set out to add a penpal from every country in the world several years ago, just as I am now aiming for a complete survey of dolls from every country. If you have a favorite memory of a souvenir doll please share and I will incorporate your comments under the appropriate country.

To me this is a way to travel the world without leaving home, though in fact it seems to be leading to plans for a trip around the world in my future.
