      I was actually pretty surprised by that too. Lol. I remember checking several sources to confirm because I just didn’t believe it!

        I think part of what makes it so hard to believe is the fact that it’s all enclosed by the rest of South America. So, one doesn’t get a full scale idea of how big it is compared to stand alone countries.
