Navigating the world by language

This is me in Leiden navigating the channels with an old world map. It's a Swedish map,  made by Docenten Friherren Sten De Geer in 1924. The upper section is the distribution of languages across the world and the lower religion. I'll make a longer post about this map and linguistics in the 20's later, for now I just wanted to share this image.
