Nice information, many thanks to the author. It is incomprehensible to me now, but in general, the usefulness and significance is overwhelming. Thanks again and good luck! Web Design Company

in our lecture, my teacher said that the size of Asia is 44,936,000 square kilometer.

Interesting layout on your blog. I really enjoyed reading it and also I will be back to read more in the future.

The mileage you indicate for the US is not correct. From the US gov. website: United States total area: 3,794,083 square miles (including water) -- (9,826,630 sq km)

Check out Africa's size: http://worldwidenate.com/how-many-countries-can-fit-inside-of-africa/

The current maps do not reflect the real sizes of continents. Australia and all Southern states/continents are short-changed.
