Jeff has five friends who have gone to different countries for a while to study the culture. He received a letter from each of his friends telling of the girls they found in these countries. Jeff lost the letters and forgot who found whom. Help him figure out which guy found which girl and each girl's hobby, name, favorite food and in which country they were found.

Friends: Jerry, John, Mark, Luis, and Bill
Girls: Jennifer, Jessica, Marissa, Ashley, Brittany.
Countries: United States, Brazil, Norway, India, Denmark.
Hobbies: Playing the piano, Read, Cook, Clean, Shop.
Favorite Foods: Pizza, Lasagna, Lamb Chops, Steak, Shrimp.

1. The five friends are: The one who found Jennifer, the one who found the girl that likes to eat pizza, John, the one who found the girl from Denmark [who likes lasagna], and the one who found the girl who loves to shop.

2. The five girls are: The one found by Mark, the one who likes steak, the one who likes to play the piano, Ashley, and the girl found by John [who loves lamb chops].

3. No guy found a girl who shared the same initial in their names.

4. Part of Brazil is on the coast, there is a lot of seafood that is brought in. Jennifer lives close to the seafood market. She always secretly orders extra shrimp, her favorite.

I couldn't find a way to figure out what countries/activities Marissa and Ashley were from/liked. I had it narrowed down to Norway and India and had to guess. Other than that, very enjoyable.
