I had to add the circles into the SVG code - along with the blue ocean that appears on every continental map except South America!

I am surprised Buenos Aires is bigger than Rio. Sorta thought it was the other way around. Those Brazilian cities.. at least there aren't as many as in China, although they are almost as tricky. World Cup was really good for geography trivia.

Kept trying Manaus as well. Got them all in the end though. Could be a difference between city vs. metro area. Porto Alegre has a much bigger metro area population.

Some Brazilians commented that nobody calls it Belo and so it shouldn't be accepted. However, you can type in BH.
