Eastern European Challenge update, quiz, and need opinions!
One question came up-should pre-1989 work by East German authors or literature be considered since, technically, it was part of Eastern Europe then? (Yes, this bunch is a bit OCD! LOL). I say it could, but if anyone thinks it shouldn't, throw in your thoughts.
Also, someone brought up Macedonia...For some reason I thought that was more related to Greece, Armenia, and Turkey than Eastern Europe. I checked two sources online and one included it in EE, another didn't. Any thoughts?
On that note, how about a game? Just for fun, if you are bored on this gorgeous day, print out the blank Eastern Europe map at this link, and fill in what countries you know. Test your geography skills!

Then, check your answers at http://faculty.tcu.edu/ccurrier/EEur_map_labeled3.GIF
As always, please share the Challenge with any who may be interested. Cut and paste the picture above if you wish. After all, Salon magazine's Laura Miller mentioned it in her column, so she must have heard it from one of you...you would NOT believe the hits my stats page showed after that appeared.
