Up until today, I thought that Sudan was landlocked. Whoopsie.

Didn't realize that Johannesburg and Lesotho lined up that nicely - I'd assumed that going south from Johannesburg you'd have to pass over the South Pole before hitting another inhabited landmass.

Shanghai is north of the southern tip of Kyushu, so the correct answer appears to be "Japan".

East of Sydney should be New Zealand. Shouldn't the south of Osaka touch any islands, like the one in FS Micronesia?

It's very easy to check these things. Go to Google Maps, place the city at one edge of your screen and go North/South/West/East from there with the matching arrow key. You'll see that Sydney is further North than New Zealand and the next country it touches is the one in this quiz.

Should probably mention land territory in the intro - east of Sydney passes through NZ's 12-mile-sea-limit, but not its land.

You could also say that you end up in Vatican city travelling west from Rome, because from certain points in Rome that is actually the case. Furthermore, if you search for Rome on Google maps, the market is set at piazza Della reppublica, so I assume that's the central point. From there Vatican city actually is the first county to the west.

Fun quiz! You tricked me with Buenos Aires, I was guessing African countries. You almost tricked me with Johannesburg - I thought I was going to have to go around the south pole until I pictured where Johannesburg sat within South Africa and realized the correct answer.

Fun quiz. Not too hard. Would be nice to see a harder version of this quiz :). Somehow I forgot that Cuba existed up until the very few seconds that was left of the quiz..

Rome encompasses the whole Vatican city, so from eastern parts of Rome the Vatican is to the west..

When I got to "south of Johannesburg," I tried Russia, Norway, Canada, and Greenland until I finally figured it out. *facepalm*

You're also reading the map wrong. After Lesotho and the rest of South Africa you go through Antarctica and end up in the South Pacific Ocean. Not over the top of the map.

Isn't Eritrea south from Mecca? To get to Sudan I think you'd have to go Southwest at least somewhat.
