Lesson 5 Challenge

Buffalo, Broadway, Great Wall, fishing in the Amazon! It was an interesting exercise to give people ideas of how to search. I got 100% on one of them, on the second try. Otherwise, more like 65%. I know that I can construct effective searches, but I tend to use quotation marks "Other than piranhas" and Boolean logic in the Google advanced search. What this reminded me, though, is that we can all learn more and that I could probably improve some basic search ideas. On the other hand, I think that some of my searches would be more effective than the keywords suggested by these exercises.
