Map of North America Flipped

Description
The view from "Down Under" — North America should be "up" and South America "down," or SO we think. But because we live on a globe, "up" and "down" have no meaning at all. The reason this map of the Western Hemisphere looks wrong to us is not because it is geographically inaccurate; it simply violates the ethnocentric assumption that Canada should be "above" the rest Of the Americas.
