Good quiz, I don't think naming and perpetuating the name of the madman murderer is necessary. Should be left to rot in ignominy

Agreed. Guyanese government should also consider renaming Jonestown to something else too.

There's not anything to rename - after the tragedy, it was abandoned, and has been getting "reclaimed" by the forest ever since. To find what little remains, you need to do a lot of planning, including finding a local guide who knows where to take you.

I'm not sure about the waterfall clue - Iguazu Falls on the Brazil/Argentina border has triple the flow rate of Kaieteur Falls. I visited Iguazu Falls last year and their vastness is just beyond belief.

The difference is really the single-drop factor with Kaiteur Falls; it may not flow as much as other waterfalls. Iguazu is immensely vast, I agree there!

Tricky but informative quiz, but the most important export question should read: "Most important export (it's a metal)".

FINALLY!!! After years of hard work, we FINALLY got the Country Trivia Badge. Thanks Quizmaster, I learned a lot in this series. And a shoutout to the Guyanese Dollar, who clutched up for me.
