Challenge #40 in the around the world in 80 ways series. Hosted by santamonica812.
Challenge has finished
I have no idea how many or how few people have been to these countries, so I am combining the following countries into this challenge: (1) Saudi Arabia; (2) Iraq; (3) Iran; (4)Yemen); (5) Qatar; (6) Oman; (7) the UAE; and (8) Kuwait. There will be separate challenges in a few weeks, for Israel; Egypt; Turkey; Jordan; and Syria & Lebanon--since it's my sense that we'll find more DPR members with photos of those reigons. For this challenge, I will start with my usual limit of 35 entries. But if it fills up quickly, I will make an exception and will increase the number of entries. As usual for my challenges, Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules...including voting WITHIN THE FIRST SIX DAYS of the challenge.
