Last week's challenge: Last week's challenge comes from listener Mark Scott, of Seattle. Think of a country with a one-word name. You can rearrange its letters to identify a member of one of our country's armed forces. Who is that, and what's the country?

Challenge answer: Suriname --> U.S. Marine, Myanmar --> Army man, Armenia --> A marine.

Winner:Jeff Perlstein of Stoneham, Mass.

This week's challenge:This week's challenge comes from Robert Render, of Skokie, Ill. It's more challenging that it sounds. Name a well-known tourist locale that attracts millions of visitors a year. It has a two-word name. The first word is a number. And that number is the same as the total number of letters in the name. What's the tourist site?
