Q: Name a country, somewhere in the world. You can change its first letter to name a well known island. Or, you can change its third letter to name another well know island. What country is it?"I won't give away my answer until after the deadline but I will give you a big hint. At least one of the islands is part of the Hawaiian island chain.
Edit: Okay, once again NPR didn't call me, so I'll just tell you my answer.
A: MALI --> BALI, MAUI
