Just to put Africa in some perspective

Note: the US portion doesn't include Alaska, and I'm not sure what they did with China there at the bottom.

But this is why Africa is such a mish-mash of people, cultures, and problems. It's HUGE!

I think europe is rather small ;)

China may look smaller than you'd expect because it's been adjusted for the "expansion" that happens on flat maps as you get further from the equator. Since Africa straddles the equator it doesn't look huge on most maps. China is not equatorial, so it does.
