Good Lord that was hard without stopping the clock. Also, the capital of Sri Lanka is now the impossible-to-pronounce Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte, not Colombo.

I'm not too convinced about the Sri Kotte thing, having looked at it on the map it just looks like a suburb of Colombo. I wonder if someone knows exactly what the situation is like. Usually I allow both names in quizzes (even in this one), but here I guess that since you're given the starting letter it doesn't really work... Thanks for your comment

Sri Jayawardenapura Kotte is the official capital of Sri Lanka. It's where its legislature is located and an increasing number of its administrative complexes. It is also a suburb of Colombo, the former capital. Accepting Colombo as an answer sounds fair, but I believe you should favor the actual capital city (as defined by Sri Lankan law) for the starting letter.

It's similar to New Delhi / Delhi situation.
