Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. My first stop was a connection flight that landed me in Argentina. Somehow I wandered outside the airport into this giant city. Many people are speaking a dialect known as Rioplatense Spanish, which is very hard to understand. Many of the monuments would remind a United States tourist of Washington D.C. Around me are the attractions Casa Rosada, Argentine Congress, Puerto Madero, and the Obelisco. Where am I?
2. Whew! Thanks to that kind taxi driver I finally got back to the airport! Now I am headed to a land locked country that is located in between Brazil and Argentina. It is sometimes referred to as "Corazón de America", or "the heart of South America". It is one of the few countries in the world that has a double sided flag. Where am I going?
3. When I got off the plane, I was offered a traditional drink that is similar to mate, a very strong tea in South America. This version of it is cold and is served in a taller cup. It has a metal straw that keeps tea leaves from being drunk. It is extended as a sign of welcome or friendship and multiple people drink from the same cup. The countries that are most familiar with it are Paraguay, Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay. What type of tea am I drinking?
4. It is very easy to get confused with all these streets named after different places. I am in the center of downtown in the largest city of Paraguay. Because it is one of the oldest cities in South America it is nicknamed the "Mother of Cities". Where am I?
5. I have to hurry to catch another plane! This time I am going to Brazil to meet some friends that live in one of the largest rainforests in the world. This rainforest covers a territory that includes nine nations, but the majority of it is located in Brazil. Which rainforest am I talking about?
6. My connection flight has dropped me off in one of Brazil's most famous cities. It is located on a strip of Brazil's Atlantic coast and is beside Guanabara Bay. This city has many attractions including a large statue of Jesus that is 130 feet tall and is located at the top of a mountain. Which city am I in?
7. I finally made it to my destination, and there are my friends! We are in a city that is located just outside of the Amazon and is also known by the nickname the "Paris of the Tropics". This city draws many tourists and boating industries because it is located beside the Negro and Amazon Rivers. Which city am I in?
8. The Negro and Amazon Rivers are known for the meeting of their two waters because they do not mix in color or in temperature. The Negro River is slightly hotter because of its black color, and the light brown water of the Amazon is colder.
9. Now I am headed up to a country famous for landmarks that were built by the Inca Indians. It's landscape has many breath taking sceneries that range from the Pacific coast to the Andes mountains. The country's flag is red and white and their coat of arms features a tree, a vicuña, and a bag of gold coins. Which country am I going to?
10. Ah, I have reached the last of my journey and I am on my way home. There are several countries I did not get to visit. Some of these countries have had some of the largest oil reserves in the world and also export items such as coffee, gems, and coal. Due to the lack of airline time, I can only focus on only a few that have passed by outside my plane window during the trip. Which of these countries is NOT in South America?
