Okay, you hit the jackpot. This year my earnings equal $10. The check is in the mail. (My Social Security starts in August; too bad for you, you jumped the gun!)

1. The mosque in..hmm...Mecca? The holy Hajj(sp) is a trip to this site.
2. Cathedral of Notre Dame, Paris.
3. Hmm, I don't think this is St. Paul's, so I guess Westminster Abbey. Though that doesn't seem quite right, either.
4. I def do not know this one. Reims?
5. Under Construction....the new Angkor Wat? More amazing Kuala Lampur construction?

Is being clueless bad?

1 Hagia Sofia
2 Notre Dame, Paris
3 hmm, that would be...St. Paul's, I think. London, anyway, and presumably Christopher Wren.
4 That's the Motherchurch of the Latter Day Saints, Salt Lake City. I think it's called the Tabernacle...Cinnamon Bear would remember, but I'm not allowed to ask him.
5 La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, first set in motion by Antonio Gaudi.

Ben said...

3. Buckminster Abbey
4. Mormon Tabernacle

2. Notre-Dame in Paris
3. St. Paul's in London
4. Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City

Answer time, and I'll just cut and paste from Walter:

1. Hagia Sophia in Istanbul (first a church, then a mosque, now a museum)
2. Notre-Dame in Paris
3. St. Paul's in London
4. Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City
5. Gaudi's La Segrada Familia in Barcelona.

Michael5000 said...

...which means that the MQ77 Exclamation Points go to stalwarts la gringissima and Mrs.5000, as well as to Walter -- presumably the same Walter who knew his geography for MQ75?

Congrats to all and sundry, and thanks for playing the Quiz.

Very strange - this is the third or fourth time that this has happened on your blog - I posted my answers, they appeared in the comments section after posting, but when I come back the next day to see what riches and fame I've accrued, they're gone without a trace. Any idea what might be going on? I know it's not just forgetting to actually post it - since I came back after posting to make sure it showed up.

For the record, I had all but the first one....

I am starting here.

If I had the means I think traveling the world to see all these and more temples, churches and places of worship past or present would be fun.

I have wanted to do that since I was a little girl. Not that amusement parks aren't a blast, they just aren't that filling.
