Global thinking

I wish I were good enough at map drawing to need one of these. The only person I know who could use this is my friend Victor. I remember lunches at the university cafeteria in Caen, France, when Victor would, on a dare, draw the detailed borders of any given country you could name. Of course, we didn't have an atlas to compare, but this talent always impressed me more than I can say. The details! the little bays and inlets of the coastlines! I am still thinking about, and this happened in 1974.
