Interesting that the capital cities of other Pacific countries are so close to each other that aren't on the list.

I feel like I'm missing something... Shouldn't Dubai be No. 1 in the last category? Since the Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world?

Dubai isn't a capital city though, the capital of the UAE is Abu Dhabi not Dubai.

Think of a girl being in mud (in, gerul, mud), but because it is muddy some of the letters are covered up.

Do you have a source for the most embassies in capital cities? Everything I've found shows Brussels, Washington DC, Beijing, London, Paris, Tokyo, and New Delhi all ahead of Berlin.

Anyone who knows Rome enough will disagree to count differently Holy See and Italian embassies in the city. All of the Vatican embassies are outside the Vatican wall, so they should be considered as part of Rome, and this would bring the city among the first 5 per number of embassies. On the other hand, there are several sites that serve both functions (e.g. the British embassy), so it's hard to decide the actual number...

It's kind of unfair that we have to use Melekeok, but the answers always use Ngerlamund. (For Palau).

Los Angeles has hosted the Olympics twice. Beijing once. So why is LA not on the list?
