How's your geography?

This is a very humbling, inter-active geography quiz. I'm so intimidated that I have not attempted it, yet.

That was pretty cool.

I wish they'd do the whole world and other subjects too, I'd become a super genius.

Hi JDH!

That would be cool if the site included an interactive world. I don't know about you but there were a number of countries that I was totally mystified by their location. What a great learning tool!

I played the map game a dozen times. I knew about half the countries, but now I them all, forwards and backwards.

I'll have to give myself a second chance and see how much I remembered. Western Sahara totally threw me; I was pleased to get Bahrain though! A lot of the _'Stans' were a wild guess.
We have friends that just came back from visiting Petra- a place I really want to see.

I had Bahrain left over. Couldn't find an empty space for it .... ?

Hi LiG.
It's the tiny island above Qatar. Michael Jackson has relocated there.

Hey, JDH! Thanks. I still couldn't see it but the red arrow found it. I guess my eyes are worse that I thought .....

Maybe MJ and his money can enlarge the island for us. ;>)

Sawsee said...

Lady! LOL! I'm not sure if MJ is still there? After his faux pas of wearing a burka into a ladies washroom may have affected his popularity (and his welcome).

Lady-in-Gray said...

Gee, Sawsee! What was Whacko Jacko supposed to do? Burka wearers aren't allowed in the mens washroom .......

Lady: Talk about being on the horns of a dilhemma! In retrospect, I wonder if he will re-think who he impersonates next...? At least he's showing his kids that he can be flexible and not be ashamed at adopting other cultures...
