Fun fact: North Macedonia used to be a part of Serbia until Yugoslavia came about (though as Yugoslavia's capital was Belgrade you could argue that it was just some sort of Serbian Empire... )

Level 53
Aug 30, 2017
I did the same, then had a flash of insight. I pictured Ecuador in my mind and then realized that one of the islands to the left has one of the distinctive shapes of the Galapagos. Hard to notice if you're not looking for it.

Should have gotten the first and third though. D'oh! .. 1st one just couldn't place, and the 3rd I think I would have gotten except it looked like an island. Should have seen that pointy tip on the bottom left... that kind of gives away that it's a peninsula. Doesn't look like coastline. But I didn't look closely enough.
