Jump Between All World Capitals: Closest to Previously Listed Ones

Start with the Capital City that has the smallest average distance to all other capitals (5,774 km). Move to the capital city that is closest to it. Then move to the capital that is closest to any of the 2. Keep going!

As a hint you are shown the distance to the closest capital. If this number is smaller than the previous one, it means your answer is close to the previous one! If it's larger than the one after it, it means it 'connects' to another capital city. If it's smaller than the number shown 4 rows above, it means its closest capital is one of the last 3.

When you guess an answer you are shown the initial letter of the previous answer at the beginning (in case you want to work your way up) and the initial letter of the following one at the end.

Hint: start with the Capital of Albania
Watch out for the following initials that might not be obvious: C for Colombo; M for Melekeok; P for Porto-Novo, Pretoria; S for Sucre; T for Tarawa
