Brazilian School Textbook Map Omits Ecuador, Bollixes Paraguay
Okay, how does something like this happen? “A map of South America in which landlocked Paraguay is shown with an Atlantic coastline and Ecuador does not exist may be found in a [sixth-grade] geography textbook used in the public schools of Brazil’s most-populous state,” the Latin American Herald Tribune reports. “Besides confusing Uruguay with Paraguay, another Paraguay figures on the map occupying a large part of Bolivian territory and distorting Colombia’s borders.” Somebody please, please, please find me a copy of this map.
