A little something to pass the time.

use the map in the top right of the screen to click on an answer. Remember to use the + function, to zero in. (try and get the right continent unlike a certain dinosaur) 5 rounds per game.

That's actually quite fun. I was feeling quite pleased with myself after the first round having got the right continent each time - although normally hundreds of miles out. With one of them I was only 80 miles off. Must have been a fluke. Second round I was way off and wrong continent every time.

Wahay! I got to just 100 metres from the correct location!!! Although I'll admit I could read the roadsigns and see that the pic was just taken outside a chateau, on the D28 road in Aube, equidistant between two named villages, and so with a quick wiki ...

But it is quite good for testing geographic reasoning and knowledge:
Is it a dirt track or well made road?
Do they drive on the right?
What sort of vehicles are on the road: battered toyota pickups or smart suvs?
What's the vegetation?
Can you get clues from language or alphabet used on signs?
Any flags visible?

... mind you the numerous straight road through pine forest ones could be nearly anywhere.

Enough! ... Back to work.
