Yes, American geography is also a problem for the French. Ohio, Iowa, Idaho... the same. They're often confused even on tv. Or you get Ohiowa, Ohidaho, Idowa. Skiing in the mountains of Washington DC.Americans are often ridiculed for their geographical ignorance but we are not alone in this, either. I remember a teacher whose European relative was coming to visit her in Idaho. She wanted to be picked up in Denver (1,340 km), swing by the Grand Canyon (1,118 km) and San Francisco (1,269 km) on the way back to Boise (1,026 km). She couldn't understand why this would be a problem, since all of these locations were in the western U.S.
