  1. Excellent calendar, really liked it!

    In Spain we do not get this type of calendars, maybe calendars where nature, models, footballers, cars are the main theme…

    Although, bit offended because Spain is missing… but I still recall being on Crimea on holidays 2 years ago, and always asked if I was Italian…

    More candelar posts, please!

  2. Ok. Canada does NOT look like that!

    Maybe in the Yukon or Northwest Territories.

    I have only seen a dog sled and igloo at a winter fair in Québec.

    So I’m going to say the second picture is of Antarctica.

    • Yes, Liberia, Burma and USA. The only countries on the planet which not yet have the metric system. UK and it’s slave countries also have troubles letting go of stones, miles and feet.

  3. The first drawing looks almost like the driver was in Finland, with the white-and-blue police car and the blue uniform on the officer. The truck’s interior is definitely Russian, though… but what’s that stuff that the driver has in his left hand? Looks like salmiakki/salt liquorice – that would definitely be Finnish. Shouldn’t it be a Vodka bottle if the driver is Russian? 😀

    …and why do all of the French drivers have their heads sticking through the roofs of their cars?

  4. A knob on a steering wheel? I don’t think Canadians have such a thing, unless you drive an old John Deer or MF tractor…

  5. You people pay toooo much attention to the smalest details,

    I calender like this is to look at the humorism side of cultures,

    and not the analytical nerve wrAcking one ….

  6. Oh, the stereotypes!!! 😛

    The Russian drawing is still the funniest – I like how the radio brand is “SORY” and the Medved about to eat the Militsiya.

    Well the year has only 12 months – can’t please everyone!

  7. Lol, for the dude who said ‘Antarctica’ – there are not indigenous peoples on Antarctica, mostly Europeans (or people of European descent e.g. Australians). Part from that it’s a pretty cool calendar, if this is what they have in Russia then I’m soo moving there :).
    BTW since when does Oktoberfest have a ‘c’? lol

  8. Can you give me a link to the site of the trucking company that made this calendar? I sent the link from your page to my Russian friend and she got offended and said that a Russian did not make this calendar.

    • We made this calendar. The link to our site is missing. Check this out http://blog.knockknock.ru/2008/02/06/mir-glazami-dalnoboyschika/#more-199

    • Actually it’s not true)))It was made by “knock knock” design studo, where i’m working)))and link, especially for you http://knockknock.ru/

  9. I would like Persia to have a more prominent role in your next calendar, please. Please don’t make me send someone to your office to see you about this.

  10. Lebanon doesnt look like this at all!! it should be iran maybe!lebanon is well developed country especially the center of the city beirut!!!
    one culture or country is missing :ISRAEL

  11. There is a mistake in the Mexican Poster. The idol hanging in the middle it is not mesoamerican. It from ancient peru. They were first discovered in northern Per (Sican), and the most famous ones are from the period lambayaque (700-1300dc). They are known as TUMIS (Sacrifice Knives)

  12. For all your fevered detail-policing, none of you ever bothered to even notice that the months are out of order! November and December are switched. Much more obvious than the etymology of the religious icon hanging from the Mexican’s rearview, I dare say.
