For the river, I thought you might be going for the Esk. Took me a while to get past that.

Probably should be clear that it is the British Cambridge. I spent 30 seconds trying to figure out how the Charles could be 3 letters. After all, as many are prompt to complain, this is an America-centric site.

I spent more than a second thinking of three-letter rivers - the Wye, the Ure etc - before actually registering that it was Cambridge. THE ANSWER WAS IN THE CLUE all along! So annoying when that happens!

Did anyone else wonder why "RDJ" didn't work for "Abbreviation for Brazil's most famous city"? Then I read the question properly.

One thought for the other quiz takers though: would you consider KSA to be acceptable for the Qatar item? To be fair it's the nearest country and the only one it actually shares a land border with. When I reached that item, KSA was my first guess before I tried UAE. Anyway this was a great quiz!

Dartmoor has many, on Dartmoor they are just lumps of exposed granite, often on the top of a hill, which would share the name of the tor, eg Yes Tor

When I read '"Question asking" British river' I couldn't get Tarn Hows out of my head - I did try Why just in case but it didn't click to spell it like that. Also Hawaiian doesn't have many letters so I just tried spelling them in different orders and got one pretty quickly!
