LIFE: The Great Challenge - by Royce B. McClure
April 2, 2008
- FIRST TO COMPLETE IN MEXICO.
- FIRST INDIVIDUAL TO COMPLETE IN MEXICO.
Anabell Perez Munoz - Puebla, Mexico
Assembled between Mid-August 2007 and 2nd of April 2008
(Time: approximately 4 months - as had a break in the middle.)
My name is P. Anabell Perez Muñoz, I'm from Puebla, Puebla Mexico, I'm 46
years old and I did the puzzle on my own; well, my husband put in 10 pieces
(ha, ha). I started to build the puzzle in mid August 2007 but
unfortunately my father-in-law died in November 2007 so I had to stop
assembling it due to the mourning; I took it up again at the end of March 2008
and I finished it on 2nd April 2008 at 2:55 pm (approximately 4 months). I
used to start assembling it at 6 or 7 pm and work until 2 am, or even 3 am
sometimes; there were also some days when I couldn't do it at all due to
work matters or family meetings.
In the puzzle - the portion which had the planets and sailboats was the
easiest; the lost city was the most difficult part (I had to assemble the
pieces by their shapes, putting them together in small areas; this was
really difficult, uff!).
When I heard about the Hall of Fame, I didn't want to lose the chance to
be the first Mexican to register for your web page, so I didn't attend
my job for two days so I could finish it since the last part was the lost
city. It was really difficult to distinguish the different shades of blue,
so I could only work during the day. It seemed never-ending, and I made
I assembled this puzzle one bag/section at a time. I have almost 200,000
pieces in different finished and framed jigsaw puzzles. I ordered some of
them from USA. I found out about the world's largest puzzle on the internet. Click images below to enlarge:
