Thanks for making this relessness. Any chance you could accept 'Sistine' instead of having to type out 'Chapel' as well? Chapel is already in the clue.

Can you please accept "Sydney opera"?

And "savanna" could also be accepted for Serengeti...

Please accept "savanna" for the last picture. It's a more general term for that type of ecosystem.

It's in inverted commas, which usually means that there might be some debate. Scotland is indeed a country (as are England and Wales which, with N Ireland, make up the four countries of the UK) but it is not a sovereign state

So-called country as indicated. Or different meaning of a country. Same level as Bavaria.

But there really shouldn't be. The UK by technicality is NOT a country. It's a trade union between Scotland, Wales, England and Northern Ireland. So if the UK isn't a country, but everyone recognises it as one, but the individual countries that make it up, which ARE countries, aren't recognised as them, then the UN is making some serious mistakes in their classification.

@stockiebasher97 If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and everyone including the UN recognizes it as a duck, maybe it *is* a duck.

Not like bavaria, bavaria is not a country. ( it is a beer ;) But that is besides the point) it is a state. Though at one point in history it has been a kingdom if you go back in time. So not comparable.

If anything it is more like the kingdom of the netherlands which is made up of 4 countries.

@stockiebasher97, I think you need to look up the definition of a "trade union".

Even if you meant to say the UK is a trading bloc, which would at least make some kind of sense, it's still in no way reflective of the constitutional reality.

Sifhraven is correct to compare the UK to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, though of course the latter case is even more skewed towards the biggest of its constituent parts than the UK is.

Needs some consistency here. Accepts Silk for Silk Road, Silicon for Silicon Valley, but not Sagrada or Sistine. Ridiculous.

i wouldn't say that for Sagrada Familia as not searching for a "Familia" but as we're looking for a chapel, sistine should be enough indeed

We locals often just write SOH for Sydney Opera House. Given the precedents on Jetpunk, like CAR and PNG in the country quizzes, might you accept SOH?

I think national park would be a better clue than "specific region", because that's awfully vague. I tried Sahel first, then Sub-Saharan Africa, then savannah...

Bruh, I completely forgot it was an s quiz... Hopefully would've gotten Sistine Chapel, and a couple more.
