I scanned them and got about 10 right. I'd like to know what a "bridge of sighs" is, and who actually invented the igloo.

I don't really know what a bridge of sighs is either but that's what it said in the book. One of them is in Venice.

I got 8, the one on the bridges of sighs is so very very relative...Hart Crane and Lorca wrote about brooklyn bridge, too

I can also think of he bridges in Lisbon and Rio, and many more.

I don't agree on 17) either, it was actually illegal.

To number one I would argue...Can you sleep with your eyes open? Not me
