Doesn't the Korea pic show both Koreas - with "the line" running between them in the center of the picture??

Yeah, the guards are North Korean, but you can see the concrete blocks marking the border just next to the 2 soldiers at the back.

Yeah, I kinda thought both countries should be accepted given it's clearly the border between them. Though it's not hard if you guess the wrong one to work out where you went wrong.

Yes, the building in the background is South Korea, as is the darker gravel that the North Korean border guards seem to be careful not to step into.

How did 90% of everyone know that the third picture is specifically Tanzania? I guessed half of sub-Saharan Africa and didn't happen to guess that one. Was everyone else luckier than I was, or is there something in the picture that gives it away?

The Maasai people in the picture live in northern Tanzania and central/southern Kenya. Kenya was also accepted. They picture clearly features the Maasai.

They are Masai (clothes, dance). Masai live in Kenya and Tanzania.

And Masai are one of the most famous African ethnic groups by appearance

I thought the mountain was Kilimanjaro from Tanzania, so I got a free answer!

The clothing looked like the Wachati peoples from Ace Ventura 2: When Nature Calls (I know...I know)...unfortunately, I didn't know what African country that was supposedly set in. I also got it because I guessed the mountain was Kilimanjaro.

Why is there a blank map? Pictures of landscapes, people, monuments are what makes this quiz series so great, so that map really feels out of place in here... :S

I was thinking the same thing. It's weird to me that they chose a picture of a map when there's lots of good pictures of Nicaragua's landmarks/scenery/people/etc exist.

Perhaps to emphasize the very large lake and even larger bodies of water to the east and west? I got it right away.

I don't think you should accept Kenya. That is what I guessed, but it wasn't the correct answer, and I don't think I earned that point. Kenya and Tanzania are two entirely different countries. It's like accepting Spain for France or Brazil for Bolivia.

I think the point is that the picture could have been from either Tanzania or Kenya; there's no way to tell just by looking at it.

Imo the picture with a dune could be any country with sandy desert

Per wikipedia, the Southern Namib desert "...comprises a vast dune sea with some of the tallest and most spectacular dunes of the world..."

Seemed like the most obvious answer to me.

now i look at it again, i see the trees at the bottom for scale so that makes sense. I didn't notice them before.

South-eastern Morocco doesn't look much different from the picture for Namibia.

Kudos to those who figured out the magnificent Koryaksky behind the notoriously bland Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.
