Geographica: Asia

     Today I asked Ally to prepare the quiz early so I wouldn't be sitting here typing at night.  She wrote all her questions this afternoon.  Here I am at night, typing.  Days are so busy, a wonderful whirl.  My mental list (I'm sorry, I just hardly ever make physical lists, but like daily goals) remains far from completed.  I think, I hope, it was a good day anyway.  The important things are done, though the floor remains unmopped.

The Quiz: Asia

1.  The name of the Gobi Desert comes from Mongolian meaning "waterless place".  The Gobi desert is in Mongolia and what other country to the south?

3.  The Sir Edmund Hillary's Himalayan Trust, a charity organization, is located in which landlocked country?
