No not the one in Minnesota. The one in England. Well CNN doesn’t.
While we were snowed in at the weekend I happened across Jonathon Ross doing his chat show thing and he showed us this. London is, according to CNN (it might have been CBS or ABC or something) in Norfolk! And I started getting all ‘What, they don’t even know where the ‘Greatest City in the World Is!?!?’. Then I stopped (after several glasses of wine) and thought ‘Do I know where New York is?’. On a map? Pinpoint? So I thought I’d give it a go.
What do you think?
How did I do? I confess – my Degree is in Geography and still I only have a rough idea where these places are. In school we had to learn all the States of the USA. By heart. (It’s 50, right?) I’ve travelled quite a bit round the land of the free but I’m not sure I know on a map where Fargo is anymore than a citizen of the States knows where Birmingham is (it’s Alabama, no?)
Anyway I love the look on Matthew Chance’s face – I think he knows London isn’t in the wetlands of Eastern England!
