Jersey’s Shore

Jersey

This stunning postcard of the beautiful view of the coast of the Channel Island of Jersey came, once again from the awesome Monica. This tiny island spanning a mere 118.2 square kilometers has an incredibly high GDP per capita of $57 000 and the second highest Human Development Index (HDI) of any country in the world. Very impressive! Jersey is not part of the United Kingdom but has a special relationship with the UK nonetheless. From what I can gather, Jersey is a country in every sense of the word, except that it relies on the United Kingdom for defence. The island has had a long relationship with both the Norman-French and the English. Jersey has been self-governing since 1204, which is quite impressive for a place of its size and still today with a population of about 98 000 people. I love this beautiful postcard, thank you so much dearest Monaco!
