Cute and funny it is. I got 8 points out of 11 and am ready to travel world wide ! However, I doubt the authenticity of the questions. e.g. In Japan, people slurp eating noodles, that is correct but they don't do that to show the chef they appreciate the food. They just do it.

Hmm. I got two wrong. But my favorite (an obvious one) is the one about asking for catsup in France.

Someone posted this not too long ago and I remember the question about the catsup, too, because I brought a packet of it home from Paris! I thought my catsup-loving teenage son would get a kick out of it because the label was written in French on one side and some Arabic language on the other.

That was really cute. I'm also questioning the authenticity of some of the answers, but whatever -- I learned a thing or two

Don't plan to eat in Iran any time soon, so guess my answering that question wrong makes little difference. Fun taking the test. Guess I missed it the first time around.

I got 8 out of 11 also and was deemed ready to do some traveling. I missed the Polish question and now have to have my husband (who is of Polish and Russian decent) take the quiz and see how he does.

I'm not sure what it means that I got all of the slurping and burping questions correct. In any case, I will blame my 3 brothers for introducing me into that charming world.
