This is what tripped me up also. I kept misspelling it equitorial rather than equatorial. The other quizzes accept the "i" but this one doesn't. At least I learned something; I thought I was spelling it right...

You will notice in the instructions "Do not use 'Cabinda'"........ which is the small enclave you are referring to.

Why is Cabinda excluded, but that Omanian enclave included in the Eurasian quiz? Anyhow, please allow drc as a type-in.

Good question Zefyrinus, I have not included Cabinda as I don't know which country to align it with. The Oman enclave you mention is just another part of Oman, whereas Cabinda is claimed by a couple of countries. (I am of the opinion that Cabinda should be an independent country if that were the wishes of the majority of the population in a democratic vote)

I agree with Djilas, at present it is part of Angola, once you start worrying about all 'contested' countries you open a can of worms. As for Spanish Sahara, now called Western Sahara, I don't know who is pushing for it's independence but could it exist financially without Morocco's assistance?......... I'm leaving things as they stand till changes occur.

cabinda is without any doubt angola, so it should by included. As soon as it gets independent you can replace it by Cabinda instead of Angola.

If the two exclave of Spain are listed then Cabinda, an exclave of Angola should also be listed for consistency.
