21 pages of questions posed about landmarks and everyday objects like dollar bills and the like. Some of the questions have little footnotes giving some insight into the answers behind these questions although I’m not sure how well researched this all is.

The East coast of Africa is a hot-bed for pirates – I’m guessing that most merchant shipping will avoid it whenever possible. This article is a tongue-in-cheek advertisement for a holiday cruise along the coast – you can rent your own M16s and miniguns from the ship to do battle with said pirates!
