Another of my friends gave me this code to show where he lives:

RODA, NAYU, GURU, GARA, MOLO, ZENE, LIZA, ANIT, ELIH, IVIL, ANIR

Can you figure out where he lives?

This time your friend lives in:

PERU

The code consists of:

4-letter fragments that can be found backwards within the names of 11 of the 12 sovereign states that make up South America:

ECUADOR, GUYANA, URUGUAY, PARAGUAY, COLOMBIA, VENEZUELA, BRAZIL, ARGENTINA, CHILE, BOLIVIA, SURINAME.

The twelfth country that completes this list is PERU, which cannot be included in the coded list without giving away its identity since it is only 4 letters long!
