World Capital Bullseye #17

A random World Capital has been put in the centre! Below it you are shown, in order, the 4 capital cities that are closest to it when going South (rhombus bearing between 157.5º and 202.5º). To its right, you have the 4 closest capitals cities that are in the East direction; going down and right you have the 4 closest in Southeast direction and so on.

To make sure you really mean to guess the target capital you have to TYPE ITS NAME TWICE!
eg if the quiz was about US Capitals and the answer was Boise you'd have to type Boiseboise

If you see that one of the cells that could hold an answer doesn't have a border, it means that there aren't enough capitals in that direction so that cell holds no answer

They certainly look wrong. What happens is that, looking Eastwards, both Lima and Montevideo are 'east' of Wellington, ie the bearing you'd follow on a map is between 67.5 and 112.5. However when you measure distances you look at the shortest route, so Montevideo is actually close than Montevideo. So perhaps for this quiz distances should be measured by the 'straight line on a map'. Wellington-Montevideo: rhombus bearing 86.4, distance 10.097 km; Wellington-Lima: bearing 72.9, distance 10.606 km
