This puzzle was really fun. It took me about 120 hours to finish. I'm currently gluing it together in 1000-piece sections. The puzzle comes in four 6000-piece bags. One thing that helps is that every 1000-piece section is identical, shape-wise, so that when you are working on a hard section (where all the pieces are the same color), you can match up shapes with a previously-done section. This made some of the water areas more manageable.

The puzzle is beautiful, and I can't wait to get it up on the wall. I'll put the 24 1000-piece sections together after I glue each one. Yes, I have a 14 foot stretch of wall space!

UPDATE - Aug 28, 2008
I had the puzzle on the wall in my classroom for a while, but the administrators told me to take it down because it was not "schoolwork." I have it back in 24 1000-piece sections under my bed with nowhere to display it.
