8/10.

One of the question (7) was in my understanding a bit incorrect / misleading, because the stamps themselves were used only on one side of the border although the region was on both sides.

Amazingly I managed 8/10 this week...

...even more amazingly it'd've been 9/10 if I'd gone with my first instinct on the not-Nepalese-Ugly. :lol:

Huge thanks to Margo for another interesting, educational and entertaining quiz. :D
