I don't know why I expected the quiz to accept 'ondon' and 'ighthouse.' I mean, the L's already given, right?

Could 'Lhasa' perhaps be change to 'a city in Tibet' given China's disgraceful genocide in Tibet?

Or rather just "city". Would be apolitical and I anyway due not see the reason why some cities have an extra hint besides starting with "L".

I know - I wasn't quite sure why we have "city in China", "British city" and then "city", "city, "city" and "city"...
It's fine, it's just a bit weird. I did enjoy the quiz :-)

I came to suggest the same thing. I would have gotten it if I said tibet.

I guess Tibet isn't mentioned on purpose to make it more difficult. I disagree anyway with choosing the description only according to what we like. What about all the cities in the USA and the horrible genocides?

Agree that saying "City in Tibet" would make it too easy. The picture would become irrelevant; it would just be "Name the only city you've ever heard of that's in Tibet."

Free Tibet, with the purchase of a Tibet of equal or greater value. Sorry, I had to do it again.

It's a quiz about geographical facts - how regrettable they are is not relevant to it

Agreed. I'd propose City in Asia.

Yes - or just "city", like almost all the others.

I think given Tibet's disputed status and seizure by the Chinese means that it probably shouldn't be included as a 'city in China'. Describing it as such inevitably risks sounding like validation.

The government in Beijing controls all of Tibet and has for over half a century. It is what it is.

Who cares if it sounds like a validation? This is a Jetpunk quiz not a UN resolution.

China's behaviour in Tibet does not validate the behaviour of the Dalai Lama before China's occupation. There's a good reason only the ruling class and the monks joined the Dalai Lama's failed coup, ordinary people were delighted that China had saved them from the brutal rule of the lamas. It's similar to the situation in Iran; just because the current regime is a bad one, doesn't mean the one before it was good.

Yes, it's history now, but I still agree with Ssssss. It's like we Americans will never live down our blunder in Vietnam.

I believe we in the UK would call that an embankment, or maybe a dyke at a push. That said, 'drove my Chevy to the embankment, but the embankment was dry' has less of a lyrical ring to it.
