Africa is Big

Did you know? Africa is often misrepresented on the maps you see. In reality it is much, much larger than you realize.

Clicker the Link

Quite interesting really.

Re: Africa is Big

I have an old globe that really distorts the sizes of continents. You can tell it was made in America because the United States is about twice the size of Canada, and the USSR and Africa are about the same size.

Re: Africa is Big
