Where in the World is ... Matt Lauer!?!?

I finally got a clue right.

Every spring, Matt (yes, we're on a first name basis) goes on a wonderful, week-long trip all around the world. He gives clues the day before he gets to his next destination so you can try and guess. I love watching the first 10 minutes of The Today Show on a normal day, but during this week, it is the most exciting. I gasp out-loud when they pan back to show the beautiful place Matt has landed each morning!

This week he started in Buenos Aires and danced the tango in the first 5 minutes he was there. Tuesday, he ended up in the gorgeous tulip fields in Amsterdam. Today was the first clue I've ever gotten! Here it is: What country is an anagram of a synonym of a homophone of an even prime number.

I think even my kids could maybe get this one. The only even prime number is T-W-O. A homophone of T-W-O is T-O-O. A synonym for T-O-O is A-L-S-O. When you mix up the letters A-L-S-O, you find an anagram of L-A-O-S.

I'm already back to being stupid for tomorrow's clue. I have no idea what it is. I think I'll go google around a bit to see what others think is his Day 4 destination!

Pin It!

If you go the website, they give an additional photo clue. Today's photo clue was that bridge that Matt stood in front of. I thought it looked like the Golden Gate bridge, only it was black, so I was clueless!
