Great quiz! This is a very good, well-distributed selection of South Asian cities. I also like the rickshaw and the color scheme :)

Hey Thread! I saw you collaborated your blog with me, really anxious for you post it! Can I edit a thing of formatting? Of the list, I would like to do a Split View for make nicer for see

And I think I’m gonna collab you a blog I literally didn’t start, that I’m gonna post at November 27th (1 day before the subject of the blog)...

Maybe to the other members of Quadruple Alliance (but ZooTuber couldn’t see it. Or I can do two equal blogs. In one I collab with ZooTuber, and the other, the rest of the members.

18/24. Missed the planned capital question since I thought it was yet to be built (and I don't know where Khyber is)
