Good thing they used a recent picture of the city in the 4th row. Can't tell for sure but it most likely wasn't annexed until 1990 and definitely not until 1977. So even though they said "... we have a problem" it technically wasn't correct. In the span of going down the main road in front you go through 6 or 7 cities in the span of about 3 miles. I'll have to count on my way home this afternoon.

I've never heard it called a horseshoe bend in the UK, I think we would normally call it a meander bend

Good quiz

It's not a horseshoe bend. It's Horseshoe Bend, the specific name given to this iconic point in the Colorado River in Arizona.

Yes, but the hint "Natural Feature" misleads a little.

As I know it (and just looked it up) meanders are the loops, and once it is cut- off it is a horseshoe. Also known as oxobow lake or billabong. (And in my language ónly as horseshoe, not something cognate to the previous names aswell)

Would never have got the 9th question from that picture. Now I see it, I see the link but I would have associated it with a different picture.

I do like these quizes though.

I kept trying to think of a bombed out city that began with H. Never dawned on me to think of THE bombed out city. I kept thinking somewhere in Germany.

Hiroshima is a city I associate with total devastation. Seeing the shell of a building still standing is more linked in my mind to European bombing campaigns during WWII.

Apparently that particular building is the only one to have survived at the hypocenter of the blast. It's now the site of the memorial.

The "Atomic dome" is very famous (or maybe infamous) landmark. More known than any other of the city clues in this quiz, IMHO.

Same here. I immediately thought about a bombed city, but I didn't know the "Atomic Dome" and by the architecture I thought it to be european or arabic, but not japanese. So I tried quite a few cities from that part of the world and there are quite a few that got heavily bombed during WWII and other conflicts.

Great pictures! I enjoyed the puzzling - got Hiroshima easier than Havana with ‘Destroyed cities beginning with H’...

I can't really be saying anything, because I missed the Hudson and Hamburg, but I'm really surprised not as many people got Hiroshima

It just doesn't look particularly Japanese from the photo, it gives European vibes to my uneducated view

The map containing Hainan shows administrative division in Song dynasty (960-1279).

I love this quiz. I only missed 3 (Hoover, Horseshoe and Hiroshima). I got Hudson by accident though :D

Clicking on the photo and seeing "Mission Control" above all of those screens gave me "HOUSTON".

I didn't guess Hiroshima with the picture, a picture of the entire city would have been more helpful in my case. This picture just made me think of Osgiliath in the Lord of the Rings or some city in the Balkans after the Yugoslavia war.

The picture is the Genbaku Dome, the closest building from the bomb that still stood. Now it's a peace memorial, and is probably the most famous landmark of the city.
