I did travel from South Tarawa (pop about 50,000) across a short bridge into Buota, the first island in North Tarawa. From there an outrigger ferry takes you onto the next island, Abatao, where it's dreamy and empty, with villages among the trees you can only walk between on a sandy track. I even found a hillock there that I swear is higher than Tarawa's official 3 metre high point!

Because the majority of Georgia is in Asia.

You could just as easily say it is not in europe. They are in neither/both. But it seems they would like to be european.

Moscow is at 55 N - do you consider it a European capitol even though the vast majority of the country it represents is in Asia?

Moscow is definitely a European city. And a large portion, and the most populous part, of Russia is in Europe.

Tashkent is there now. I can always remember that one because it's one of the cities my parents visited on an agricultural tour of Europe and the Soviet Union in the 1970s.

Apparently one that means "place of fermented (keyhole) angelfish", nice!

And don't mistake angelfish for anglerfish. Which is what I thought of when I saw the word.. (partly because english isnt my first language and didnt read the word angel as you are supposed to but more like angle. But then again that could also have been bécáuse I already had anglerfish in my mind)
