Both that is different not having them on a map, once I got my bearings it wasn't to hard either.

Why are you all confusing Venezuela and China? Does China have such a thing at its south?

The correct answer will be posted in the NY Times on Tuesday, but I am convinced that Thorben is correct.

I at first thought Venezuela was China, but then corrected myself at closer look.

Venezuela was hard, but the hardest was Bolivia. I thought it was Colombia, but that just didn't seem right.

Once you guessed Venezuela correctly, what you initially thought was Colombia couldn't have been.

Hardest one for me was North Korea.
