Photos From Each Country

Country 13 of 198: Which country? #picture198countries

For the next 7 months or so I will post a photo from a new country every day. To be the first to see them, please follow me on Instagram (where I am @Garfors). I will not tell you which country they are from, that is up to you to guess, sometimes a little hint will be added. And please feel free to share your own photos from that particular country too, using #picture198countries. I would love to see many more shots than the 198 I will contribute with.

You guess by adding a comment to the photo via Instagram. The first 21 to correctly guess the right country 10 times will get a free copy of my book "198: How I Ran Out of Countries*" in the mail (or electronically, if you prefer). Or you can find out where to buy it here

I will reveal which country each and every photo is from, a day after it has been posted. Most photos have been snapped by myself, I will otherwise credit the photographer. And I might appear in some of them, too. 

And do not forget to enter yourself or others into The Country Challenge

Please check for your daily photo fix, or see one photo from every country here.
