Start with a circle of radius r, draw n number of points spaced evenly on the circle. at each point on the circle draw another circle of radius r, once again with n number of points. What sort of a picture would one get repeating this process an infinite number of times, n tends to infinity and r tends to some very small non-zero quantity?

Just had to leave a note, unpacked boxes from long ago; looked up a old acquaintances. Well done!!

I was given a similar problem:
