Based on predetermined geographical surroundings, guess where in the world you are. It's a fun little game.

I was close a couple of times, but one picture that looked like Mongolia was actually Spain; who knew?

My score: 7,000-ish

I challenge you all!

I was on the right continent and in the right country each time...city is very hard to pinpoint.

Here's hoping my defense at the dread judgement seat of Christ doesn't turn out to be 'well I argued about what day it was.....a lot'

7,679. I actually got really lucky figuring out Australia twice. Another time I was quite close to my home country, Romania. The other two were hard and my answers were off.

I think I have been cheating. I have done this twice now and have been able to pinpoint where I was (I was too lazy to go back to where I started but it was within a mile). I have been reading the signs as I go down the road and then use google. The first time I went past a post office that said I was in some town in North Dakota. The second time, there was an ad for a politician on the back of the truck. Googling that put me a Sinaloa Mexico. Going down the road a little further got me got me to a restaurant which has a facebook account with the Sinaloa street address and a picture for confirmation.
