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.

Sorry, forgot to apply standard type-ins. Much more forgiving now!

Though I'm usually happy when the type-ins let me answer Krung Thep in stead of the somewhat erroneous and western misnomer Bangkok, this time it doesn't quite make sense to accept Krung Thep as it is already in the hint... By the way, that is not the whole name. The whole ceremonial name is Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noppharatratchathaniburirom Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphimanawatansathit Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasit :D And here in music form (the only words in the song is the name of the city): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PU4WWkpUfEU

Someday I'll spell Riyadh correctly. Lol. Clearly my brain wasn't working though as I school boy-ed on on the 16th question.

"Shares its name with a city in California's Bay Area" could also be Dublin

I think Pretoria should also be accepted as the southernmost African capital.

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.

Surely Singapore is the closest capital to Singapore? :)

Thought I was going to breeze to 100% but the last one stumped me. Now that I see the answer I feel like I knew it at some point before.

Am I the only one who saw the 'Starts and ends in O' clue, and immediately started typing Ouagadougou, then got to the end, and realized, darn, that doesn't end in 'o'!

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.
