Is it deliberate that Etruscos is labelled on the map? If so that's pretty generous. I wouldn't have had a clue otherwise.

I got it without enlarging the map but, yes, that's pretty generous.

That's the only one I missed even though the answer was right there hahaha. Still, I agree that it's too generous.

I saw the region on the map and tried several possibilities - just not the actual answer...

First I thought of Euler and then I couldn't think of any other mathematicians.

Isn't it also "Eiffel tower", not just "Eiffel".

That's a big part of the clue. I kept saying to myself "IT'S THE DUDE FROM NARCOS" but the name kept eluding me. I hadn't even heard of Medellin, Colombia until I started watching that show.

Sat there for way too long thinking that the country looked European, but which European country had a big wall? I blame Monday.

To be fair, East Germany is not a country anymore.

It's frustrating to know the right answer, but not being able to spell it. It's even more frustrating to be just one letter off. East Indias, East Indies... arghh...

I tried sticking dutch into number 6 about 20 different ways before figuring out that it was not needed.

Maybe consider changing the hint for East Germany to former country? It hasn't existed in a couple decades, and for Edo you noted that isn't the current name either.

I hear you, but the Berlin Wall is in the picture, so there really aren't many other options starting with E. "Former" is just going to make it even easier.

You should definitely accept east dutch indies for east indies.

If anything, the country was called Dutch East Indies. But a) that was only the former name of Indonesia, and b) it doesn't start with an 'E'. Moreover, there were also the Spanish East Indies, which covered the Philippines and Taiwan (Formosa). So for the entire region, plain 'East Indies' is the only correct answer.

I don't think Escobar deserves a place in history: Over 5,000 murders and a lifetime of cruelty should be flushed down the sewer and forgotten: a man who could nail a horn to a horses head to give his daughter a unicorn should be forgotten:
