Good quiz. Most answers were fairly obvious but I had to think for a while to get all of them.

Can't believe that Turkey is colder than New Zealand. Maybe the average altitude, which is probably higher, makes enough of a difference.

Not really that surprising, as Lesotho is almost entirely in the mountains and has the highest low point of any country in the world.

Wouldn’t have got Lesotho in a million years, actually didn’t even think about anything in Africa
