    Wow, this isn’t getting any easier 😉

    1) Well there are a bunch of middle eastern ones:
    Kuwait, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia
    and a few African/Sth American ones:
    Venezuela, Egypt, Nigeria, Liberia.
    (if I can’t even get to 12 guesses I really am in trouble)

    2) Sound like ballet positions to me

    3) I don’t know, but I might start stabbing wildly at the quotes. Avicenna?

    4) It’s spring (which seems to have thoroughly sprung in Dunedin)

    5) I had to google this one, I always think it’s very odd when that happens to people’s names
