It's a bottom shelf, plastic bottle vodka sold at supermarkets in California. However, I too first became introduced through Risk.

Hmm.. I left Kowloon off of my recent Asian travel quiz in part because I thought nobody would get it, but 30% got the answer here. Maybe I'll add it.

I would have thought Hong Kong was one of the few Asian cities where you might be able to drill down below the top level and still have Westerners get answers correct in half-decent percentages. Although perhaps my view is skewed, having formerly lived there.

The country in which Kashmir is located should be accepted as the answer. I tried Pakistan, Afghanistan and India, but never managed to remember that Kashmir was also the name of the province. And yes... Kobe Bryant got his name after Kobe beef. I always knew that info would come in handy one day :)

You realize it's a "K" quiz, right? None of those countries starts with K.

I really like the Asian geography by letter quizzes. It's probably quite nice to do more about Asia for a change.

Didn't know about the Christian heritage of Kerala. Most of the Indians in Khobar in Saudi Arabia seemed to be Keralite Muslims, and in their ads online offering rooms for rent they would always specify Keralite Muslims only need apply. I suppose they had to learn to hate other religions somewhere.

There is a strong Christian culture in Kerala as well as the Hindu (still majority but by a smaller margin compared to the rest of India) culture and a Muslim culture. Each strong and with its own unique identity, but Kerala is known for its religious harmony and more or less peaceful coexistence of different religions and sects. A lot of the Hindus here eat beef and have a a very loose approach to religion too.

Thanks. kalbahamut, wise and well travelled though she / he may be, shoots from the hip sometimes. Won't apologise either and prefers rambling arguments. Sigh. Never mind, let's appreciate her / his many informative comments.

I don't think that Kazakhstan would be considered landlocked. It has some part bordering Caspian sea which would make Kazakhstan a "Non Landlocked Country". Please consider it and correct me if I'm wrong.

Not this again! It might have the word "Sea" in its name, but it's not a sea in the conventional sense - it's called "Sea" because it's huge and "sea-like".

Mind blown? What about when you learn that in the Japanese hiragana there is no anagram as one is kyouto and the other is toukyou (i.e. only a short 'o' on the end of kyoto), Kyoto being made up of the chinese characters Capital City whereas Tokyo is Eastern Capital.

Trivia fact: Kowloon is a site of the most densely populated place in the history of the world. Kowloon Walled City had population density of mind blowing 1,400,000 people per 1 km. Currently, it doesn't exist anymore.
