I enjoy all these country quizzes. They are very educational. Here I got 17. Not happy with that. I`ve been to Ecuador. But another great country quiz.

Really good quiz - I'd question whether the 's' is needed for the fruit clue? I wondered whether it meant the singular form of the fruit ended in 's' (as a hint).

Everybody knows about Mt. Everest but so few know about Chimborazo. It is a pitty.

Ok, not getting Quecho, Quecha, Quechu is my fault, I really didn't know the exact spelling, but I would argue Sea Iguana perhaps should be accepted, especially for those translating from another language.

(and yes, for those who can't wait to make this point and probably made a macro for it, it is an English site/quiz, but this site takes type-ins)

Edit: Actually Sea Iguana is one of its official English names, as well as Saltwater Iguana both of which I tried.

I know more mountains in Ecuador than any other South American country. Interesting.
