Just so you know, Limerick and Liverpool are not counting as answers. Might explain the high number of wrong answers for both. Enjoyed the quiz otherwise. :-)

I actually very much enjoy the questions about human geography topics. They provide a challenge and are much more difficult than the typical political/physical geography questions.

Wouldn't accept "Luzon" for me. Also, it just hit me that Louisiana, purchased from Napoleon by Thomas Jefferson, is named after the beheaded king (Louis XVI) who preceded Napoleon as ruler of France. The irony continues... Jefferson was Ambassador to the French Court during Louis XVI's reign.
