Great selection of questions! If you would have told me I could answer 15 questions about Kazakhstan correctly I would be laughing haha, I would think I would get 2, its capital and how it is spelled.

(I would have gotten 16, cause I new what was meant in the last question, I just could not come up with the (english) word space, sky and star was the closest thing my mind could make of it haha)

Missed the export, holiday, and the 2 remaining city questions
