About This Quiz

There are so many places in the world, admittedly this quiz skipped over a few big G places. So let's confess which ones were left off.

One big G place was the Great Wall of China, which was built along the northern border of China. These sets of walls are over a millennia old and were built starting in 7th century B.C. Altogether, these walls are close to 14,000 miles long.

And then there's where the pyramids are located in Egypt--Giza. These architectural marvels were called one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Another G geography location--the Ganges (or Ganga) river which flows through India and China.  It is 1,569 miles long and one of the most sacred places for Hindus. Unfortunately, this river is very polluted, threatening humans and other animals alike.

For you Americans--there's no state of Georgia in this quiz, either. And that was actually on purpose--it's the only G state! But there are other American places that begin with the letter G.

What we hope is that this quiz will take you to some more far-flung places that aren't too obscure but are just under your nose. So get your compass, gather your growing sense of adventure and start this globe-trotting quiz.

Good luck!
