Maps of interest


1. This map shows the world divided into 7 sections (each with a distinct color) with each section containing 1 billion people.


2. This map shows (in white) where 98 percent of Australia's population lives.


3. It may not come as a surprise but more people live inside the circle than outside of it.


4. This map shows what is on the other side of the world from where you are standing.  For the most part it will probably be water.

6. This map shows the countries (in blue) where people drive on the left side of the road.

20. This is a map of 19th century shipping lanes that outlines the continents.


21. This map shows (in navy blue) every country that has ever operated an aircraft carrier.

23. This map shows (in red, orange, and yellow) the world's largest donors of foreign aid with red being the biggest donor.


24. This map shows the most photographed places in the world.

Glad to see we have low chance of being eaten by a Great White Shark in Belize.
Correction on the Mc Donald's map. Belize doesn't have Mc Donald's, and never had I think. At least not an official one, there have been some imitators, but that's it.

Live and let live

"Oh give me land, lots of land . . .
and the starry skies above.

Don't fence me in."


A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?
