Yesterday we asked our Geo Quiz texters,
We heard over 75 different responses for people suggesting the most welcoming country. Check out the results:
One of our commenters on theworld.org pointed out that in the original interview, Max Fisher said “Most welcoming country, I would say Egypt. and least welcoming country I would say Egypt during Ramadan.”
Commenter Erin wrote in response,
The interviewee suggested Egypt was the most welcoming in his experience, but he’s a HE. i know many women who would say something very different about Egypt. I’d say that “most welcoming” has a lot to do with gender and ethnicity even, and hard to frame it otherwise.
What do you think? Is a country’s welcoming attitude dependent on your gender?
Jonathan Mazower, advocacy director for Survival International talks about the important role that reindeer play in many Arctic cultures.
Some indigenous tribes including the Innu of Labrador and Québec are struggling to maintain caribou herds in the face of development and climate change.
For our Geo Quiz we’re heading to Kenya’s Rift Valley.
The lake we’re looking for is not Kenya’s biggest but it is one of the most economically important. Its waters and shores are home to fishermen, farmers and a huge cut flower industry.
The lake borders two national parks, and it’s just 50 miles northwest of Nairobi… so it’s a tourism mecca for Kenya.
Can you name this lake that was featured in the film version of “Out of Africa,” about Danish writer Isak Dinesen?
Today’s Geoquiz: We’re looking for an unusual art museum called the tunnelbana. It took shape back in the 1950s and there are now more than 90 galleries and installations.
