That's quite generous: I typed in Davos for the Filipino city, scrambling it with the Swiss one, and it gave a tick for Davao!

:-/ but I wasn't able to come up with an acceptable type-in for Denpasar. I think I had a few vowels and consonants switched around. Also feel dumb for missing Darjeeling.

Sort of raising my hand. I knew if from MY office, not The Office, where many of my co-workers are consultants from India.

Djilas has a point - I was surprised by the answer (which I got) as well. It's a bit like asking for the name of the Japanese government and expecting "government" as an answer.

I'm guessing all Japanese politicians must be very healthy if they're on The Diet. *I'll just leave now*...

Diwali is also known as Deepavali in a large part of India. Could that be an acceptable answer?

+1. Infact Deepavali is the more proper Sanskrit name. Deepavali literally means a series of earthen lamps, which is what we decorate our homes with at Deepavali (or atleast used to before cheap Chinese lights).

The Liaoning province of China contains the Liaodong peninsula. I don't think there's such a thing as the Liaoning peninsula.
