Wonderful series of quizzes, this and the others. One flaw though - "a male sheep (a ram) a rib or two" - this has another solution: Male, capital of the Maldives.

I am SERIOUSLY impressed you managed to work in "Paramaribo". This quiz deserves a nomination for that alone.

Paramaribo is impressive, but N'Djamena is downright genius...

Agreed. The parenthetical in Paramaribo basically made it shout out from the page and drew my eyes instantly.

N'Djamena, on the other hand... I wanted to stand up and applaud when I saw that one.

These are just wonderful and amazing! After I finished digging up as many answers as I could (got 20), I re-read the letter just as a letter, and boy you've managed to hold an interesting theme with plausible language throughout (OK, maybe George wouldn't have said ain't, but why quibble?). I wonder how many quizzers try his recipe.

This has always been one of my all-time favorites! If you bolded / highlighted the section after it was guessed, like what you did with Rabat in the example, I think this quiz would be even better.

Nearly missed Malabo; got a few of them quickly though. Such a great quiz, bubba. Kudos to you. I had a lotta "wahh!" moments and made many "ha!" noises, thanks to your quiz.

Nominated.

This is a crazy quiz. Some effort gone into that, fair play! Everytime I read the word Risotto is kept taking my mind to Ottawa which was throwing me off!
