A new and improved version of my South America mnemonic and lesson and an easier puzzle.

It’s a better, easier puzzle now.

The answer (an awesome mnemonic IMHO):

Other regularities in the list.

Miscellaneous thoughts on the list and the map of South America.

Why the second version is better than the first.

Why is Ecuador not the ‘zeroth’ country in the list?

Other stuff.

Additional coincidences in South America related to the 60th meridian.

What about the 45th meridian?

“The doth root of yell.”

‘France’ is lot easier and is at least as good as ‘French Guiana/Guyane”.

A hidden mnemonic and a separate additional mnemonic.

A slogan or two to promote attention to parallels and meridians.

How the South America mnemonic promotes numeracy.

More stuff.
