    Inversion?

    I'm not sure word order in this sentense.
    "2003 found Maria staying in the West African country of Mali...."I wonder if this sentense is inversion.Is it correct?

    Re: Inversion?

    It's not inversion, Yuyu, but personification - "A figure of speech in which inanimate objects or abstractions are endowed with human qualities."
