Americans Try To Place European Countries On A Map

And most of them fail, miserably. XD Note to the Americans on the board; mistaking Scotland for part of England will earn you a punch on the nose, so bear that in mind if you ever decide to visit there.

I could probably tell you the German names xD...since that's where I actually learned the geography of Europe: in my German class. Estland, Lettland, Litauen (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) are easy to remember as the top 3 most northeastern countries of the continent, and Croatia is shaped like a "C". But I'll never remember Albania and Serbia and all those other ones...it's like the north east coast. I almost forgot about Delaware once, it's so small.

Some of the mistakes are funny. "Second Poland", indeed.

On one of the US versions (draw from memory I think), someone wrote "all of this is Nebraska" over where Kansa, Oklahoma, North/South Dakota, Iowa, and Nebraska should be...and I had to laugh and agree with them.

I feel really sorry for the Welsh; according to most Americans, their country doesn't exist.

I am Welsh! Along with Scandinavian and Russian. (My last name is a very common Welsh one.)

I have to do a project for AP Human Geography and I have to label all the countries. Not that hard, but there is just so many countries. Elanorea, I never realized how close Estonia was to Russia! Maybe that's my ignorance talking..
