My world map is finally hanging on the kitchen wall. It looks amazing, and is exactly what I was looking for. More than that, it's doing exactly what I hoped it would. At least once a day, usually during a meal, we are answering questions about geography, population, land use, world events, or travel. Because we're all sitting in one spot (for at least 5 minutes, anyway) we have time to answer questions, ponder the answers, and let that lead to more questions. By far the best part of the new decor in the house.
