    • Congratulations Kim. Really great score. I live in Florida now and it is great finding myself within walking distance of the beach and the Atlantic Ocean and the Halifax River.

  1. 9/11 Super quiz, Rasma! I really love this series on the states. I must catch up soon on the ones I’ve missed. It’s a really excellent learning experience 🙂 I totally love the manatee!

    • Congrats on your score Norman. Glad you are enjoying these. The manatee is one of my favorite sea animals and would like to swim with one someday.
