Geography Quiz #1

I used to do Geography Quizes on my old blog and decided it was fun enough to keep doing it here. 

Some will be relatively easy, some will mention little, obscure places and you’ll be wondering why on earth we are doing this. My daughter has to answer the questions using only her atlases and globe. The computer can only be consulted when she can’t find it on either atlas (and I have verified it so).  As our fingers do the traveling we get curious about the places we visit and we then use the Internet to learn more about them.  The answers will be posted in a few days. Until then, have fun!
