I also typed every single country that started with v, then i just typed Vaduz because i did not know any of the others and i didnt even look at the hints so i could have gotten Vientiane if i did

I also made this mistake. You can find a gondola at Vail, so technically Vail should have worked for this question as well. I think the question needs to be changed to avoid ambiguity.

Pretty easy for me. I misspelled Vail at first as Vale, maybe that's why some others missed it. It also likely helped to get Varanasi that I've been there.

Only one I missed. Never heard of it. I have lots of trouble remembering the lesser known cities in India and China. I'll check out your quiz and maybe I'll get this one correct, at least.

I did that also, but I think it's because I watch too much Game of Thrones and thought of the Vale.

He was born in Salzburg, but spent a lot of his life in Vienna. Though I might have said that Strauss was a more obvious choice for a composer associated with Vienna.

Yep, should definitely replace 'Mozart' by 'Strauss'

Why? There are many other composers associated with Wien, Mahler for example, but surely Mozart was the greatest?

I was going to be smug and say that Richard Strauss was German, but I have just learnt that he was the principal conductor of the Vienna State Opera for a few years, so that's shut me up.

Salt and yeast extract. Just moisten a veggie bouillon cube and spread it on bread, and you've pretty much got the gist of it. My daughter brought a jar back with her from her study abroad in Australia - sorry, but it just wasn't my thing.

yeah it's kind of homeopathic. you should spread it so thinly that it's undetectable and there's just a memory of it.

Marmite on the other hand...
