A Bit of Geography

If you were asked: In which contries do we find the following cities?
  • San Francisco
  • Manila
  • Pamplona
  • San José
  • Santiago
  • Santa Cruz

What would you answer??

Just a map - NOT a hint

I would pretty much have replied the same list of contries as you would - except that I just discovered an answer yesterday, that was quite intriguing. I had to look up a city on a map when I discovered a new answer to all of the above cities. "A" as in one (1) answer !! :o) And I have asked my colleagues the same question as the one starting this blogpost, and all of them looked at me in disbelief, when I told them my answer.

"You are quite right about the list of contries. But my answer is: the Philippines" :o)

Look it up, if you don't believe me *LOL* But you will also find Venezuela as one of their cities.

Hope I just created a wide grin on your face.

I love my maps - I used to sit and look through atlases for hours at a time - imagining all the different people and places, and wonder what someone would be doing, at that moment in time, in one city or another.
