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.

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!

One of my favourite spots in the Lake District....... early morning in Autumn, mist just fading as the sun lights up the red and green foliage, everything reflected in the mirror-like lake and the sound of birds just beginning their day.......... magic.
