Wha?? How is Amsterdam not on here? and Kingston, too. Something's wrong with this quiz.

Very tough quiz, I only got 5. I got La Paz immediately, because I remembered that I read somewhere that "If you fear wildfires, you should move to La Paz, because the city is so elevated that there isn't enough oxigen for a wildfire to successfully start". Except that I was just guessing. I knew that somestates had to be on the list, but I had no idea of what their capitals were.

Funny how opinions change in 3 years. I took this quiz today and thought...MAN how could I miss Sucre and Bloemefontein when I got La Paz and Pretoria. Made total sense to have both in there when they both meet the criteria of the quiz.

For Europe, perhaps. And, of course, it's down in a valley, not stuck on top of the mountains... 1023m is the 'official' elevation, as a quick search would tell you.

The Himalayas have a very steep slope, and Kathmandu is near the end of it. The city of Kathmandu is less than that of the city of Denver, Colorado.

Santiago is only a bit over 500 - go a short way east though and you'll be thousands of metres above sea level. Viewed from Santiago (when the smog allows it) the Andes look unnaturally high - instinctively at first glance you think their snows are clouds.

It took about five times going to Santiago before I ever saw the mountains. There had been a torrential rain the day before. My god, what a difference - what a beautiful setting.

Can you be a tad more generous on the spelling allowances, especially for the likes of Antananarivo. And allow Mexico for Mexico City? I know it's proper name is Mexico City but on a tough quiz like this where there is a lot of guessing going on every second counts.

There is one that was missed. Bloemfontein in South Africa is 1,395 m. If it counts for anything, I'm from South Africa and almost no one here really regards it as a capital. But since the quiz includes both of Bolivia's capitals, Bloemfontein deserves abit of fame here. A mediocre fun fat: this city is where the ruling party ANC was founded. Thats about the best i could do.
