World Map Doodle

On Sunday morning, while I was invigilating an examination in Xian, I started doodling on the white board. It was not very accurate. But it was done purely from memory, in about 5 minutes. My friends, who know of my fascination with maps, would not be too surprised that I would do that.

    I am much impressed! Great job!

    I remembered as a little girl, maybe 7 or 8, I started reading atlases of my elder siblings, and knew the names of countries and cities, continents and oceans etc. Now I believe this is one simple way to broaden our horizon, to cultivate our concern for other cultures.

  2. Thank you.

    I started loving maps when I was in senior primary school. I used to own a map book with a map for each province of China, and I tried to memorize each one. Then I moved on to world maps, to do the same. There was no lofty objective. I just felt it was enjoyable.

    I didn't think there was anything unusual about it.

    I thought everybody did something like that. If it was not maps, then it was music, novels, drawing, calligraphy, etc.
