"Hey Pat. I got the list of possible destinations for my trip this summer. I'm not sure why I need a diagram, but I assume you want me to get this down to a short list."
"Sure, if you want to. But I've already picked your destination, and it's a great deal."
"Then why did you send me a list of countries?!? This isn't the first time you've sent me an itinerary with a location listed twice, and this one has TWO screw-ups. You really need to check your work better. Pat..."
"Trust me, you're gonna love it!"
Gah! Every time with Pat it's a freakin' puzzle. Never "How about Italy this year?"...no that would be too easy. Can you please look at this mess and tell me where I'm headed?
1. Trinidad and Tobago 2. São Tomé and Príncipe 3. Republic of Ireland 4. Afghanistan 5. Federated States of Micronesia 6. Marshall Islands 7. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines 8. Republic of Ireland 9. Federated States of Micronesia 10. Nigeria 11. Sierra Leone 11. Bosnia and Herzegovina 12. Australia
It's been a long time; think I remember most of the rules, but apologies if I've messed something up!
