In Guatemala they still call them Hurricanes, not Cyclones. Needs to either be changed or allow both answers to be accepted. Also, the last name is Garcia, not Gracia.

Hurricanes, cyclones, and typhoons are all the same thing, the name depends on what ocean they come from. In that case, there could definitely be a cyclone in Guatemala, as cyclones come from the Pacific.

Well, the ones in the Northeast Pacific are called hurricanes, and the ones in the Northwest Pacific are called typhoons. They're called cyclones in the Indian Ocean and most of the Southern Hemisphere (along with a few other places), which are nowhere near Guatemala.

The last question is tricky. If you ask for an author, the correct answer couldo also be MIGUEL ANGEL ASTURIAS. Should accepto both.

No place for famous people, like Nobel prize winners? The aforementioned could be made into an easy enough question with a hint to a Spanish region.

And maybe the ocean to the south, to have more questions.

"Volcán de Fuego" must have been named by the Department of Redundancy Department.

I took a wild stab at fuego - ashamed of myself for laziness. And voila.

A quiz of two halves. The first column is very straight forward the second has one easy question, one guessable question and four I had no clue about at all.

I found the second side fairly easy but not as much as the first.

the 1954 coup is such a significant event in guatemalan history & latin-american history as a whole that i'm surprised there wasn't a question on it

13/15 Man, I am doing better on lesser obscure countries, then I am on countries like Germany, France, India and South Korea.

This is (so far) one of the easiest of the country trivia quizzes for making progress towards the badge.

How did you combine the 'bordering countries' into a single row?

Go to "Design Grid", first make the quiz manual. Then on the right row there you can do it with "Merge Cells".

I only got the Quetzal bird currency when I was attempting the old city question with Quetzalcoatl. I should have got Tikal though.

I arrived in Guatemala the day the eruption occurred on an 8th-grade school trip. Went to Antigua. Smoke in the air for days. Planned to hike the volcano but it got canceled. Craziest thing ever

I can't believe I got the Quetzal question at the last second. It was a desperate stab after parrot didn't work and I couldn't think of any other green birds. The Resplendent Quetzal is one of my favorite birds!
