Congrats to everyone who helped make that a reality!

Wow, all of this is awesome!

There is no greater pleasure in HOTOSM for me than taking an hour or
two and doing #MapLesoto tiles when you or Dave mention it. I
encourage everyone to take some time and join with the people, remote
and local, of #MapLesotho on the projects Ciarán and Dave post about.
It is a real opportunity to be a part of this incredible, successful,
long running community building and mapping project. Everyone who is
part of the HOT Community for longer than 6 months probably has some
#MapLesoto tiles in their Tasking Manager history :) Lets all go get a
few more and if you have not mapped any #MapLesotho tiles yet, now is
your chance!

Best wishes,
