I knew which city is that, but I just couldn't spell it right :D Didn't help that in my childhood every map or globe had a different spelling of it...

It would make more sense to spell it Wagadugu (best matches the orthography of other African languages) or Uagadugu but due to the influence of French, all the U-sounds are spelled "ou", giving us the mess that is Ouagadougou.

Sadly Ouaga is accepted now. Why can't we learn to spell correctly?!

I know - it's really putting me off Jetpunk altogether. The number of times my answer somehow starts with an E or some other missing letter from the previous answer just because an 'alternate' (read incorrect) version of spelling was accepted.

Yet we need to fully spell "Republic" when it's quite clear what's going to follow when you type Dominican Rep... :p

I thought Ouaga, Georgetown, and Bloemfontein had particularly good clues.

Lilylee is correct, and Lisbon is definitely the answer. If you're still not convinced, measure it with a piece of string on a globe.

4843km is Google's suggested quickest route to drive between the two, not distance as the crow flies. It involves driving through Belarus, Poland, Germany and Denmark, where you catch a ferry to Iceland. The ferry arrives at the east of the island, you then drive around the north of Iceland to get to Rejkavik. This is nothing like a straight line!
