My Japanese friend married a guy from Pittsburgh and I was like where is Pittsburgh? She said it’s in PA and I said I had to Google that. She laughed in my face and explained that PA is Pennsylvania. Uhm, not so familiar, I told her. For some Filipinos like me, we only know the Big Apple NY, and Hollywood because we love Hollywood celebrities, and Las Vegas because of what else, casinos! Lol. Please don’t bash. We don’t even know 100% of our own country’s topography. Then I saw this photo.

@DaddyEvil Same with us, as we live in a big country we have not seen every place and city here and there are many cities about which we never heard.

@MrDenata Not all the cities but know most of the states. We are taught in the school to locate these states on the map.

I think that’s true of everyone with every country they don’t live in. We Americans probably see Canada as Niagara Falls, Toronto, and big piles of snow everywhere else. Truth be told, a lot of people from the northeastern U.S. see America that way as well.

they left out Las Vegas and some other major points but I get the picture. It is a good map is this is what interests a person and they don't need to know more because they do not live in the states. When I went to school in NYC the hardest thing was when the teacher asked us to memorize all of the US capitals,

I learn to differ the south and the North. North seems like the Big city like Washington and New York , while south is Texas and Oklahoma . The South citizen is more friendly than the North.

It is not very different from how the rest of the world see Europe I suppose. They have no idea how big the states are and how they are places. May be I know better the USA than Europe. I am fine with the "old" European states, but when we go to the east (Poland, Romania, Bulgaria) I often have to check.

@sol_cee Yes, "yee haw" is (more or less) Texas, that is larger than California, on the left and that is only part of the West Coast that I know very well. West: from bottom to top: California, Oregon, Washington State and then Canada. I know less the central states.

That's a great map. When I joined myLot I wanted to see in my mind where US members came from so I learnt where all the states were. I've forgotten precisely now but I still have a good idea of where each state is.

OK, here's my map of Australia: Down and to the right, Sydney. Or is it Sidney. An opera house. Down and to the left, Judy Evens. Up and to the the left, it must be warmer up there. Up and to the right, it must be warmer up there. Somewhere to the right, New Zealand. Somewhere down there, Tazmanian devils. In the middle, Aborigines and kangaroos. How did I do?
