2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,300 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 22 trips to carry that many people.

African Trade Beads

African trade beads are from other parts of the world and were traded to the Africans.

Beads were traded for Gold, Ivory, Palm Oil and more. Most are Venetian.

Beads continue to be traded from Africa today.

In the past 40 years Africans started making their own beads and trading them around the world.

We have a variety of colors and sizes in Peking Glass beads.

China became a large scale exporter of these beads in the early 1840s.
