Geography Chain - Extremely Difficult

The questions below are ones that I believe are obscure or difficult for most people to guess. The last letter of each answer is the first letter of the next.
Put a comment below to suggest more difficult questions and I'll do my best to work them into the quiz!
Likewise, if a question is too easy, just say so and I'll remove it from the quiz.

Did not know the spelling of Raqqa. I tried variations of Rakha.

Whew. You weren't kidding that this is hard. I got two, and one of those was the fairly easy "Darfur".

Thanks! I tried to vary the difficulty so that there were a few easy ones, but based on the answer stats it looks like most of them were pretty difficult. I know that I myself wouldn't do very well on this quiz if I hadn't been the one who made it!

I love quizzes like this that send me off researching odd geographical nooks and crannies.

Love this quiz. Really challenging.

Regarding the Benghazi clue -- Just couldn't get it because the clue seems to suggest a word that is in the singular form ("this geometric shape") but the answer is a plural. I kinda knew the shape of the Benghazi roads, but couldn't think of A shape that started with R and ended with S. (I tried "rhombus" which isn't really right, but it never occurred to me that the shape of the city would be described - ungrammatically - as "a rings".) You can't really fix it by simply accepting ring as a type-in because no one would guess a word ending in G if they knew that the next clue starts with an S.

Maybe tweak the question to say "Shape(s) formed by the main roads of Benghazi"?
