I think my MIL had it out for me when she bought me this for Christmas. She knows I like puzzles but this one proved to be crazy hard. Not only is the thing round, which made it extremely difficult (because I had to start from the bottom and work my way up), but I suck at geography. Prior to doing this puzzle I would have never known there is a country named Kazakhstan had it not been for a certain movie. The rest of my lackluster knowledge of the location of other foreign countries, comes from (hate to admit this) watching the Amazing Race. Pathetic. I am truly pathetic. I'm sure all of you out there know right where Burkina Faso is, right? Likewise, before Survivor, I had never heard of Vanuatu. Seriously, pathetic. I am happy to say I have learned a few things in doing this puzzle.
1. Uzbekistan is spelled with a Z.
2. New Zealand is a lot smaller than I imagined.
3. Alaska should have just been a part of Canada... the thing is way up there.
