I don't know what to say, some are really shocking.
But " West Germany - East Germany ", " Borat " and put Australia and India in Europe, I do hope people are joking !
Anyway I think that they are better than most of us, if we had to place names on the American States. Sad

Hi Marine, Muriel,

I'm not that shocked.
It's true that we'd have difficulties if we were asked to label North American states though most of them have the size of European countries.
Nowadays, French people would be unable to locate departments in France, or big cities (I could but it's due to my age - we had to learn this at the elementary school).
I couldn't put a name on islands in Polynesia even for its French part.

Thanks for the link Muriel.
