Interesting that Asia starts not at the Urals but at the Ukranian border. Of course, Metternich said Asia began at the Landstrasse…

It looks as if the cartographers didn’t under stand the difference between “Asia Minor” and “Asia”, or about European Russia. So yes, presumably unintentionally they have produced a map which will give offence to a whole lot of people.

That will be bad for all those people who go looking at submarine cable maps and expect to be able to plan a road trip with it as well.

I’m totally fascinated by the vast abyss we know so little about . And crisscrossing those mountains and valleys are little bundles of wire. Crazy.
