Find Mapman[TM].

As JS's Mapman, I create the maps you see in all of our Issues. In the photo above, I'm leaning against the world's oldest freestanding structure. It was the final destination of a trip I took recently. The map shows all the places I visited.

If you correctly answer the following questions, find my final destination, and draw a map of the country to which it belongs, you could win our Mapman[TM] contest! The grandprize winner will receive a $500 U.S. Savings Bond, a Franklin[R] Electronic Merriam-Webster's[R] Dictionary, and a Mapman T-shirt. Twenty-five runners-up will each win an electronic dictionary and a T-shirt. Good luck!
