No, he means at one point, the portuguese controlled the malay archipelago, before the netherlands took it out from under them.

I never knew Portugal only controlled a bit of Angola/Mozambique, and I also had no idea they ever controlled Uruguay.

There's a cute Portuguese-built colonial town in Uruguay directly across the river from Buenos Aires, appropriately called "Colonia", worth a fast ferry trip from BA.

There is indeed. It's a very very pretty place and has very colonial architecture there. There are some cool old ruins to see as well.

I know you've put it as an exclusion, but in my opinion Macao (China) should be included in the same way as you have included small parts of other countries (e.g. Uruguay, Malawi). I would have nominated the quiz otherwise.

I agree with this, but have nominated it anyway, in the hope that this issue will be ironed out. Good quiz.

Actually Daman and Diu and Dadra and Nagar Haveli are all one thing now (fairly recent development).

Portugal did not control India, they were in control of Goa but this is not a type in. If Macao works instead of putting China then Goa should also be the same.

Goa is a 100% part of India, Macau is an autonomous area of China, accepting 'goa' for India would be like accepting 'south' for Malawi.
