It's been a long way since 2011. From now on, the comments to come will be from the 2020's. Right now, Iran and USA are in a diplomatic crisis, while Australia is burning down due to climate change. Trump is being impeached and Evo Morales resigned as president of Bolivia. I wonder how the world will be in about ten years from now.

I feel French Guiana and should be on here with the capital as Cayenne...although that would mean the Falkland Islands should be on here too with the capital Stanley.

Ha! I went ahead in time the furthest. I am hereby dubbed "Marty McFly," whom actually should be called "Doc Martin" because he really liked the shoes, and kinda became a doctor after all that time machine stuff with Dr. Emmet Brown. Hooray! Yay 80s movies!

Blanked out and combined Paramaribo (capital of Suriname) and Maracaibo (lake and city in Venezuela) to get Paramaracaibo and then realized that I added a few too many letters there.

Just watched I Still Know What You Did Last Summer the other night... very dumb movie generally speaking... but the thing that kept bothering me the most was that nobody knew what the capital of Brazil was. This was a major plot point, too.

11/12 🇸🇷 Couldn't get Montevideo even though I knew it started with M. Got confused between Ecuador, Paraguay & Uruguay's capitals, but good thing they didn't have to be in order!

I remember South America's map being stamped in our notebook and we had to color it and label the countries and their capitals. The ink got smudged, causing pages to stick and stained our hands :/...
