When I was young, after having discovered the planisphere, I used to believe that the world was flat. And when we studied the discovery of America, I didn't understand why all the class said that the world was round. I was and I still very obstinate. Finally, my mother succeeded in making me listen to reason, after 2 days of negociations.

When I was a little girl, I used to believe that if I dug a hole in the floor I could cross the planet and arrive in China to travel all around the country and after, dig some other holes to go to all countries of the world.
So to check if it was true or not, I tried it in my garden but it wasn't a great success and besides my parents thought that there was a mole !!

I have often had strange associations with country names, like Kosov sounding like cassava, and macadamia sounding like Macedonia. There are many other Slavic or Balkan country names like this, such as Turkey and Hungary, that certainly does it for me.

My cousin and I both thought Narnia was a real place when I was about eleven and she was about ten. I looked for it in my closet, and she thought a painting on my parents' bedroom wall actually came from Narnia.

When I was little I wanted to be an explorer. I figured 2D maps of the world were only showing half the Earth, because obviously the Earth is round, and that the other half hadn't been mapped yet. I wanted to be someone that discovered the other half of the Earth.

When I was a little girl, I used to have a funny believe about traveling to China. My brother and I used to think that if we started to dig in the earth, we could arrive to China and see people from there. That was so strange because we tried to do it once, but of course we failed, that was so far from us. We used to believe that people from this part of the world traveled on this way and we could do the same. Now we know that we need to take a flight to get there. Very expensive!

I used to believe the Tropic of Cancer was a part of the world where lots of people got cancer. I assumed skin cancer must be especially common there, since I could see on the globe that it ran through the Carribean where it's so sunny.
I always felt really lucky that I didn't live in that part of the world.
