Where in the World: South America

Ah shit, this is embarressing. Firstly if any of you thought I may have been cheating in anyway, I really think this is going to dispeal that thought. Secondly, I would like to apologise to everyone in South America, especially those countries I got wrong. (most of them)

Lets go with naming the countries first

Brazil, I felt I was onto a good start here.

Suriname. I couldn’t remember how to spell it, but I knew it was fairly close in my head to the word surname.

Guyana I knew that was there

French Guinia,

So far, so good and then just a mind blank, I knew there was a country that is really thin that runs down the side, and I knew I should know what that was called.

Columbia, Venzuela (I have been here) Equador right nearly half way and I was struggling.

Argentinia, thank god I have hit the half way mark.

Panama? Are those islands (number 14) Costa Rica?

At this point I started staring at my map hoping something would come to me, nop nothing. I was missing Puru, Chili, Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia and 14 is the Faulkland Islands, which is technically not a country.

But I thought, if I put the ones I had in place, then maybe it might help me remember what the other countries where

  1. Brazil
  2. Suriname
  3. Guyana
  4. French Guinia
  5. Nop
  6. Nop
  7. Venzuela (keep in mind I have been here)
  8. Columbia
  9. Panama (not in South America)
  10. Argentina
  11. Nop
  12. Equador
  13. Nop
  14. Costa Rica (also not in South America)

I placed 2 in the right place Brazil and Argentina, could only name 7 and put 2 countries in there which are not even there.

I would like apologise to Rebecca who has taught me alot about South America countries, particularly Chile.

Think you can do better? Then why not join in, next week is Central America, only 7 and I have given you 2, I think. Rules are simple, don’t google them, if you want a bit of an extra task, do a post about any country you may have missed or put in the wrong place.

    This is a good tool for all of us to share…both educational and humorous. Writing about a country we missed makes us explore areas we never had prior reason to do. I’m in.

    Okay, I have actually visited central america so let’s see how I do. These are so not in order…Guatemala, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Honduras, El Salvadore and Belize. Think I got em all. Costa Rica and Guatemala are side by side. Panama is at the bottom. the others are all in there in the middle somehow…lol

  3. ¡Ay ay ay, Trina! I have failed you by not including maps for my posts. A bit sad Chile didn’t come to mind! You’re brave in your quest for more thorough geography.
