I will be in Bogota next week, but it doesn't surprise me at all that it isn't on this list. Indeed I would expect Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Lima and Santiago to appear before Bogota.

Sao Paulo is bigger, but Rio is definitely more well known (which one has hosted an Olympics?)

It's funny how the most-guessed city isn't the most-guessed on this list. :)

It's actually pretty interesting how closely correlated the most guessed in this quiz are to the most guessed overall.

I think some people see "world cities" and assume that means the USA is excluded. But after guessing Tokyo, London, and Paris and seeing there's still an empty spot at the top... probably most of them go on and guess New York.

Interesting that Washington DC doesn't make the list, but San Francisco does. There are also numerous other world cities that I would have assumed would be here, like Hong Kong, Bangkok, etc.

Well San Francisco is the headquarters of many of the devices we are using. It is also more diverse and has more connections to other countries in it.

I wonder if there would be any cities that would show up here but do not because they have populations under 2.5 million. No really obvious ones I can think of, since it goes by urban area and not city proper. But maybe.

I did the whole quiz thinking I was supposed to name the most named capital cities. I was endlessly puzzled when Washington DC was not on the list. What a dope I felt like when the answers came up.
