Thursday/ Doraemon travels the world

I am still opening my little souvenirs from Japan.  I found this world map with a set of Doraemon refigerator magnets in Tokyo, and felt compelled to buy it (because I think it is cute, not because I plan to travel to every country in the world!).   Doraemon is the intelligent robotic cat (from a manga series created in 1969), who travels back in time from the 22nd century to aid a schoolboy, Nobita Nobi.

Here is the background board with numbers for 50 countries, and a background panel for each. The USA is easy to figure out (No 39 -Empire State Building and Golden Gate Bridge), South Africa less so (No 22- a mountain or cliff, but that is NOT the famous Table Mountain from Cape Town).
And here are the Doraemons for each country. The United States Doreamon is dressed up in a Statue of Liberty costume, and the South Africa Doraemon has a Nelson Mandela shirt and a vuvuzela (well done!).
