In a row, you first tell me that I have a typo when I spell it "a historic place" because it should be "an historic place", and next you tell me I have a typo when I spell it "an historic place" because I spelled it "a historic place".

Historically, it has long been The Yemen, The Sudan and The Lebanon. There was even a song by that name many years ago, by Human League.
