8 for me on Teoni's quiz#3.

Nearly 9, as I dithered between Burj al Arab and Burj Khalifa and went for the wrong one. :(

I did get 4 out of the 5 I have visited! Been to South Rim but not walked the trail so didn't know the length. I wonder if for numeric ones the question setter should say what range is acceptable.

Poznan's goats I got right, after dithering for a bit whether it was there or Lodz; that was a rail trip which was a bit of a blur. I remember seeing the goats doing their show in the window up high, but I far more clearly remember going to a very 70s Soviet looking competition boating lake and then the rather tired zoo.

I did consider making it multiple choice but then I wondered if that would make it confusing.

I think that's a great idea.
