whoops looks like I made a lot of mistakes - later I'll try and find out how (maybe this is actually on the top 250 cities?!) and work out the data again - thanks for spotting them!

I changed the title to Top 250! (used to be 1M cities) and Brazzaville isn't in the Top 250. Soon I will be submitting the 1M cities version
