I’ve been doing this puzzle of Northern Africa and Middle East countries for a couple of days now when I have a spare minute and want to unwind online. I was rather shocked at how little I knew about the geography of those regions! Eek! I didn’t even know a couple of them were countries! :) I’m pleased to say that I now pretty much have it down pat where Turkey and Turkmenistan are in relation to each other, and where almost every other country that ends in "stan" goes (and there are a lot!). How well can you do?
