Jump Between All World Capitals: Most Isolated from Remaining Ones

1. Start with the World Capital that is furthest from all other ones (ie the one from which you have to travel further to reach any other one) - hint: the first answer starts with C
2. Now find the Capital City that is furthest from the remaining ones
3. Keep going!
You are shown distance to the nearest capital, the number is shown in blue if it's an island country, in brown if it's a landlocked country.
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. Note that if there is a tie you look at the distance to the second nearest capital to decide which one is more isolated (when this happens both distances are shown)
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
The last answer contains two capitals (the two closest together in the whole world)
