Rats- 79/80 on the whole series, I finally missed the last one. Pretty proud of thinking of Riyadh, even though it qualifies for all the wrong reasons.

This is an excellent series, I like it way more than country one. Hope to see more!

The university in question is strategically placed right off the main road going to the airport. I used to work for the company that was in charge of staffing the place. Turnover rate was astounding.

Definitely not! Pretoria is not the southernmost. Five capitals are further south: Cape Town, Bloemfontein, Maseru, Mbabane and Maputo.

Let's be honest. Now that we know Stalin learned to become a priest, all of us wish he would've become a priest and not done all those other things.

Nope, I did the exact same thing. I spent forever trying to spell it right only to realize it ended with U, then couldn't think of the right answer.
