Country and Capital Neighbour Connect with Jumps and Disappearing World Map: Furthest from Greenwich Meridian along Parallels
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 furthest from Greenwich Meridian ('parallel distance') 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 furthest from Greenwich Meridian.
Start with the country/capital furthest from the Greenwich Meridian along a parallel: SOUTH TARAWA!
Don't forget that 'horizontal' distances on a flat map get 'distorted' depending on latitude!
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
