The Panama Canal is indeed the dividing line between North and South America so the country of PANAMA is on of the missing answers. :D

(It might amuse JUS to know that the port at one end of the canal is called COLON which, perhaps, allows M.P.C.'s misprint!) :roll:

The story so far ..

You've got RUSSIA and TURKEY which have mainland territory in Europe and in Asia and PANAMA which is in both North and South America according to which side of the Canal you're on. The other one according to the Royal Geographical Soc has territory in both Africa and Asia which probably gives it away. But it's gone on too long so a change is due.

My definitions came from the Royal Geographical Society and included just the Four (EGYPT being the last). The definition of Asia is slightly tricky because of politics. Eg Israel is in Asia - just look at its position relative to Turkey. but it enters the EURO-vision Song Contest. The Middle East is part of Asia but some take it to be a region on its own,. You just can't win!

After such research on your part I feel the baton should pass to you.
