Wow - that was hard. I guessed a lot of things for Buddhism before finally getting it right. Was it because India was the birthplace of Buddhism? I thought immediately of Japan, then China. I think there are a larger proportion of HIndus in India than Buddhists. That one really threw me off.

For Islam is to Saudi Arabia I was thinking it was like one of the countries has Buddhism as a state religion just as Saudi Arabia has Islam as a state religion. At first, I tried Sri Lanka, then Bhutan, then Thailand, and quit trying it before getting to Cambodia.

I kept putting in Amsterdam for Schiphol, then Rotterdam when that didn't work. Realized just in time that the country was actually asked for, which I find odd anyway, since airports are always linked to cities.

Yes, but the clue in the first part of the equation is obviously a country - Thailand. That's how you know the answer will be a country.

Good quiz, but quite tricky, so I'm disappointed not to find a comment from kalbahamut saying that it was easy.

Man this one made my head hurt ! Still got above average though but it was a tough one. ( but not too tough imo, nice balance, upon seeing the answers only qantas is an unknown to me, eventhough I am sure I came across it before on this site, the name rings no bells, didnt stick)

Dear me! Fancy not accepting Primera Liga! That's what people commonly call it in the UK. At least the top division, but there again if you say Bundesliga you will generally be meaning the top division. Didn't imagine you required simply La Liga. Perhaps this is a question of my perception from England, since there the top division is a separate entity from the rest of the leagues. Also you got me by requiring that two answers be Vietnam, I tried every other se asian country. Otherwise I would have had 20/20. grr :)

I'd have done a lot better if I'd noted the yellow box sooner. Wasted a lot of time trying to write Kilimanjaro many different ways before realising I was on the wrong box!
