Ok, my evil mind came up with an evil game. Devil

Can you allocate a town/city/region you have been to, to each letter of the alphabet? And just to make it trickier: you can only use one town/city/region per country! (That prevents people having 26 towns from their home country.)

Sounds easy when you think of all the places you've ever been to. But start filling in the gaps and you realize it's not THAT simple...lots of moving around. Took me 2 hours! And at the moment I still can't think of an city with the letter X....

Here's mine:

Amsterdam, Holland
Brussels, Belgium
Chiloe (Gran Isla de), Chile
Dublin, Ireland
Edirne, Turkey
Filadelfia, Paraguay
Guanzhou, China
Hamburg, Germany
Iguazu, Brasil
Jodhpur, India
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Luxembourg, Luxembourg
Meteora, Greece
Nairobi, Kenya
Osh, Kyrgyzstan
Piran, Slovenia
Queenstown, New Zealand
Rawalpindi, Pakistan
Singapore, Singapore
Tokyo, Japan
Uyuni, Bolivia
Verona, Italy
Wien, Austria
X --
Yekaterinenburg, Russia
Zurich, Switzerland

The heat is on...

Oh, c'mon Mim, have a go*, post it. I didn't complete mine either.

*The "have a go" thing is still cracking me up...even after living here for two years now.

I told you: it sounds way easier than it is. I guess, all the others are still shuffling.

Respect, halfnine--have you really been to all these places?

I was briefly tempted to give it another go, but no--still no Zs and no more Xs, either.

I'm such a lightweight since I've only been to 9 countries. But I think I have been to an X, or at least outside of it, and I know I've got a Q. So I'll just concentrate on the weirder letters if I can.

Amsterdam, Nethelands
Brussels, Belgium
Cancun, Mexico
Jutiapa, Guatemala
Koblenz, Germany
Maria Alm, Austria
Prague, Czech Republic
Quebec City, Canada
Xenia, Ohio, US
