Find Yourself Some Maps

If you are in the DC area, go check out this exhibit at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in the Smithsonian. A well curated exhibit that charts the rise of Portugal and its conquest of lands far and wide, the exhibit includes some beautiful artifcats from Portuguese India and quite a few world maps...proof that atleast some non US Americans have been historically well accquainted with their cartographers. Now if only we could do something about South Africa and Iraq.
This exhibition folds up on 16th of September.
