Country and Capital Neighbour Connect with Jumps and Disappearing World Map: Closest to Equator

In this quiz country centroids (ie geographical centers) and capitals are combined: countries (country centroids) are 'blue' and capitals are 'pink'.

Always choose the neighbour that is closest to the Equator where a neighbour is any of the following:
- a bordering country
- the capital of a bordering country
- the corresponding country/capital of your last answer

When left with no neighbors jump to a different island! Go to the capital/country that hasn't been mentioned yet and is closest to the Equator.

Start with the country/capital closest to the Equator: QUITO!
Dubious India/Sri Lanka and Qatar/UAE borders are not considered
For multiple capitals countries the following were chosen: La Paz, Porto-Novo and Pretoria
Jumping idea from Eutychus
Country Centroids Data from Portland State University (https://www.pdx.edu/econ/country-geography-data), for missing countries from CIA (https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/fields/2011.html)
