Default E: 25/12 ? ADVENT The QI Advent Calendar (cannot enter until 24 December)

http://qi.com/the-qi-advent-calendar

Each day we'll provide you with a picture of an elf hat in a mystery location, behind one of the squares below. All you have to do is work out where each picture was taken.

As soon as the last picture goes live on 24th December we will supply you with a form, which you will be able to access via the magnifying glass at the centre of the calendar.

Whoever can identify the most locations wins a QI goody bag, and three runners up will receive a copy of our new book 1,227 QI Facts, signed by the Elves.

Day 4:

I'm pretty sure that the answer is: Niagara Falls as it straddles the USA and Canada.

Day 4 - Iguazu Falls (border of Brazil and Argentina)

vegetation at the base is unlike Niagara or Victoria, and the "balls" reference suits.

If you want a scary look at the bridge go HERE

Hold your mouse button down and move the pointer left/right and up/down. Don't do it if you get Vertigo!
