World Map

Relationship: Im/migrant

My parents used to have a world map hung in the living room, brought over from China. It wasn't anything special except that, being from China, it was in Chinese and was centered around China. I always saw maps that centered around the United States, so when I looked at it, not understanding Chinese, I was confused at first when I couldn't figure out where New York or Florida was, but was convinced that I was looking at the United States and North America.I had to ask my parents to find where we were.NOTE: Image is not my own. I could not find the actual map around my house.
