One of these days I will remember to always try the name of the country itself just in case it's one of the answers.

Those questions are annoying. It's a good joke the first time, a pathetic trick the tenth time...

I've actually been doing for the last ten quizzes. It's funny but also really annoying sometime!

So sad that a Honduran city became a "murder capital." In the 70s I actually camped out in the interior. The people were so friendly and welcoming. One evening, when we realized that we were heading down a steep hill in Tegucigalpa, going the WRONG WAY, the pedestrians that saw us ran down the hill and stopped traffic for us. The interior of the country is quite beautiful. We saw far more people on horseback than in cars. Thanks for the quiz and a chance to remember.

One of the kids I worked with while I was an ESOL teacher in Virginia was a boy from Honduras. He knew how to ride a horse, but he had never in his life held a pencil.

This might be one of the most depressed-sounding quizzes I've taken on this site.

I didn't actually know about the monkeys but I did try "kapuchin" - just spelled it wrong.

I second. It's not just bad spelling.

I tried just it because I'm used to the name of the nation. According to Wikipedia "Miskitu" is actually "more correct", but that's not accepted either. :(
