Peru specifically but South America in general. There are hundereds, if not thousands, of stories of golden ruins of the ancients. A 16th letter discovered recently tells of a jorney by local Indians to Paititi, the Incan El Dorado. To quote Captain Lucas from Creature from the Black Lagoon, "There are many strange legends in the Amazon".

It is, but in Nubia wasn't seen as a real empire until the '70s. Before, because of racism, archeologist couldn't imagine the Nubians ruling over the Egyptians or having a complex civilization.

No one for Peru? I mean, are there any legends in Egypt about ruins if found would be worth billions. Tut's Tomb was worth about 10 million. A small tomb of a minor king was the greatest find in Egypt in the 20th centuary. In Peru, Hiram Bingham found an entire lost city in 1911. Pluto was discovered before Angel Falls in Venezula.

It's a very hard choice because they all have unique things that make their ancient cultures and environments amazing for adventures. But, I have to go with Eygpt, since new reasearch and tombs are being excavated all the time, along with new myths and legends.

Being a The Lost World fan, I always transmogrified Dino Island into Arthur Conan Doyle's The Plateau (A.K.A. El Grande A.K.A. The Grand Tepei).

I understand, I LOVE when adventurers go to Peru(go ahead and make fun, but Indy's included), but there's always some MYSTERY about the jungle that makes it creepy and dangerous.

Since Egypt is in Africa, I could pick A. Africa to get both!
Assuming that the Africa choice means everything except Egypt, I will have to go with B. Egypt. Such a long history: Old, Middle, New Kingdoms plus various period of collapse, recovery, and conquest by outside empires.
Too bad you did not add Central America as a choice since I have actually traveled there to see some Mayan pyramids at Tulum and Chichen Itza. The Mayan city states collapsed prior to the Spanish conquest. By the time explorers found them some where almost entirely covered in jungle; some pyramids looked like natural hills until they were uncovered by archeologists.

Egypt rules over all!

I agree completely. The sheer size of Karnak and the fact that the Pyramids are the only surviving "Wonders of the Ancients", mean that my vote goes to Egypt.(Plus, they have Zahi!)
