Where in the World

Andrew at This Magazine's blog has a link that you will find addictive: A world geography quiz:

Think you know your countries? Take this quiz. I scored a pathetic 40%, though I think I deserve half marks for getting Haiti/Dominican Republic backward…. [BLOG.THISMAGAZINE.CA]

I scored only slightly better than Andrew the first time I took it, getting 50 per cent. I mistook Sudan for Nigeria and (gulp) Jamaica for San Marino among other dopey mistakes. Knew where Spain was, though!
The quiz lets you represent your country. Canadians taking the quiz were scoring exactly what I was. Apparently New Zealanders are doing the best with a score of about 60 per cent.
