Thank you, Venkatesh and Trupti. However, my meager efforts are nothing compared to the artists who henna those hands!

Yea! Nice map! ahahhah my country appears just in the middle. It has a form of a face, can you guess which is my country?

Well, this is a fun game. Your name is Spanish, Maria, and your accent sounds Spanish, but Portugal looks more like a face and both are "in the middle." If your accent is Portuguese, you could be Brazilian. Brazil certainly looks like a face with a very prominent nose, but it's not in the middle of the map. Does anybody else want to guess?

ajajajaaja well we started with a fun game! Guauu you did a good guess!! BUT you are not right. I said that my country has form of face to do it easy, but I think that I complicated it. You were almost right. What do you think??

You're funny, Maria! My country looks like a cow. Maine is its tiny head and Florida is its front leg. Or maybe it's a bull because of the shape of lower Texas. Can you guess?

Ok prof. Hodges. Let me ask you some questions before saying anything. Let see, Is it in the hump of the cow? and the other question is.. you can say either cow or B_ _ _ _ _ _ ?

Is WHAT in the hump of the cow, Maria? My whole country looks like the cow!
(Thank you for censoring yourself. I don't want anyone saying Bull---- here.)

Hey, Sara! You're right about the USA: it does look like a cow!

Yours may be the only African country that looks at the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, but in Europe both France and Spain have coasts on both bodies of water! You're directly south of Spain, correct, just across the Strait of Gibraltar?

I don't know why I was thinking in a state , so I was looking for a state that looks like a cow between Maine and Florida, so I thought " aha, I'm really clever, I know which one is the state" so I got Buffalo (even it doesn't have anything in common with a cow, but looks like a bit) and then I thought again " what did you think prof Hodges? did you think that I'll never get it? diffult but easy to me" ahahahhaah (silly Maria)

You're so clever you confuse yourself, Maria!
