Jump between World Capitals: Most Isolated from previously listed ones, with a map

Start with the most isolated World Capital. This is the Capital from which you have to travel furthest to reach another Capital (it's actually a draw, so you also look at the distance to reach the second closest capital). Then, find the capital that is furthest away from the first one of your list. Then, find the capital that is most isolated from the two you listed. Keep going.

You are shown distances in km to the 2 closest capitals that have been listed already. When you guess an answer, below it you will be shown the names of the two closest capitals of the following answer. If the following answer is more than 5,000 km away from its hints, you will also be shown its initial letter.
For the first two answers, since there are no 2 closest capitals, the hints are completed with the closest capitals that has not been listed yet. These cases are highlighted in orange. Answers are coloured depending on the continent they belong to.

So, your first answer is the Capital City that is 2,330 km away from Wellington and 2,717 km away from Port-Vila!
You are shown the two closest capitals of the first answer in the cell above it
