St Petersburg works for Tampa-St Peterburg but not for St Petersburg, Russia. I understand the difference but when St Petersburg was accepted, it was initially thought that it was accepted for the city in Russia.

Spelling quite demanding on here. I could have done much better if I didn't have to spell cities like Ouagadougou, or mixing vowels in names like ahmedebad (ahmedAbad, etc..).
