@CreativeSWAT, in another quiz I would agree with you, but since this one specifically asks about the city associated with Mother Teresa, who died in 1997, the name used during her lifetime should be acceptable.

I dunno if it's important, but the stretch of the Thames which passes through Oxford is called the River Isis.

Got 100% but a couple were guesses. Doesn't Miami almost work better for the Havana clue? I mean, they have lots of vintage cars there. Maybe not as many as a percentage of the total... and Gloria Estefan was in Miami Sound Machine. And yeah there was a famous Tropicana casino in Havana, but the first thing I think most people think of is orange juice. Florida produces a lot of orange juice and Tropicana the juice company was founded in Brandenton, Florida.

Spring Break -- panama city, key west, daytona, south padre, cancun, etc all come to mind first. Cliff divers was enough of a clue but spring break is an out of date clue.

Well, I think you are supposed to look at all 3 clues in conjunction with each other. One clue won't necessarily be enough to give you the answer. High murder rate could be also be a ton of places too, but the other 2 clues definitely help you narrow it down to the right one.

"black hole" is a pretty depressing clue for Kolkata. How about something like multiculturalism instead? Kolkata may be the only place where one can find a Shia Mosque opposite to a Zoroastrian Fire temple. It was even nicknamed the "city of joy" after a novel by a French author.

And train bombing for Madrid isn't a very beautiful clue either... what about Museo del Prado?

The river in Oxford is generally called the river Isis (though it is an alternative name for the Thames).
