I decided that, rather than scour the internet for printable maps of the areas I want to include in my holiday journal, which seemed to lead to all kinds of inadvisable and extremely dubious sites, I’d just go and buy a cheap atlas to cut up.
But do you think I can bring myself to cut it up?
So, whilst scanning and printing out the maps in question (which undoubtedly is going to cost me more in printing inks than the atlas itself), I came across this curious juxtaposition of pages.
I know, Cyprus looks so comfortable there in the Bay of Bengal, doesn’t it?
This could give a child a seriously distorted view of the world, don’t you think?
