Simply by seeing so many dozens of times—not a conscious learning. Same way most would probably recognize the shape of their own country—repeated exposure.How did you learn the shapes of the countries?
Well I know where most of 'em are, I certainly know that better than shapes. I've always been into world affairs, I know or have known people in lots of different countries… Mainly just an interest followed for 5 decadeswithout knowing where all of the countries are?
That's my problem. I'm almost 50, but I haven't been interested in geography until a couple of months ago. I've just crammed what I know. I don't even know why I got interested. But it's nice hearing about a place on the news and knowing exactly where they're talking about.Mainly just an interest followed for 5 decades
