A great and challenging quiz. Nominated. I recently visited Las Palmas which I believe has a population somewhere between 3 and 400,000. I wonder if you have neglected African cities such as this which lie in countries normally considered European? In a similar vein, I note that you have included one Egyptian city which is in Asia, not Africa.

The Djibouti dot seems to be centered on the country Djibouti, not the city.
