Nice quiz, thanks.

one thing:

"What ancient group of geoglyphs are located in that desert, and is a UNESCO site?"

- This question should be after the Atacama question.

There might be people complaining about it though, as it's often called the "Nazca Desert". After all, the Nazca Lines are hardly in the "extreme southernmost lands in Peru", they're like 1/3 of the way up. It might just be the Peruvian way of referring to the northern part of the Atacama though, I'm not knowledgeable enough to complain myself...
