I don't know why I expected the quiz to accept 'ondon' and 'ighthouse.' I mean, the L's already given, right?

Could 'Lhasa' perhaps be change to 'a city in Tibet' given China's disgraceful genocide in Tibet?

Or rather just "city". Would be apolitical and I anyway due not see the reason why some cities have an extra hint besides starting with "L".

I know - I wasn't quite sure why we have "city in China", "British city" and then "city", "city, "city" and "city"...

It's fine, it's just a bit weird. I did enjoy the quiz :-)

I came to suggest the same thing. I would have gotten it if I said tibet.

I guess Tibet isn't mentioned on purpose to make it more difficult. I disagree anyway with choosing the description only according to what we like. What about all the cities in the USA and the horrible genocides?

Agree that saying "City in Tibet" would make it too easy. The picture would become irrelevant; it would just be "Name the only city you've ever heard of that's in Tibet."

Free Tibet, with the purchase of a Tibet of equal or greater value. Sorry, I had to do it again.

It's a quiz about geographical facts - how regrettable they are is not relevant to it

Agreed. I'd propose City in Asia.

Yes - or just "city", like almost all the others.

And can we accept "a city in traditional Chumash and Tongva territory" for Los Angeles, given the horrific genocide of the Indigenous peoples in the United States?

But 'Tibetan city' would make it too easy since most people know only one city in Tibet (or none).

Rename Tibet and Taiwan to Nachos.

I think given Tibet's disputed status and seizure by the Chinese means that it probably shouldn't be included as a 'city in China'. Describing it as such inevitably risks sounding like validation.

The government in Beijing controls all of Tibet and has for over half a century. It is what it is.

Who cares if it sounds like a validation? This is a Jetpunk quiz not a UN resolution.

China's behaviour in Tibet does not validate the behaviour of the Dalai Lama before China's occupation. There's a good reason only the ruling class and the monks joined the Dalai Lama's failed coup, ordinary people were delighted that China had saved them from the brutal rule of the lamas. It's similar to the situation in Iran; just because the current regime is a bad one, doesn't mean the one before it was good.

Is that what makes the lake notable? I've never heard of it, and it's tiny, you have to zoom all the way into Banff to even begin to see it.

It has the Equator on the picture, which is a line of latitude. Easy mistake to make.

Couldn't come up with anything other than Laguna for that body of water.

I believe we in the UK would call that an embankment, or maybe a dyke at a push. That said, 'drove my Chevy to the embankment, but the embankment was dry' has less of a lyrical ring to it.

I learnt it as a levee in A-Level Geography years ago. I think we also learnt about dykes too, so not sure the difference.

Embankment can be natural, so I think that's why the distinction.

Enjoying this series, Relessness; nice mix of questions. But I agree with some of the above comments about China - why not just describe it as city'?

So pretentious that non-Americans should know the shape of an American state. In what other country in the world do we know the shape of a state/territory?

I wouldn't want to predict that a British person could recognise the shape of an arbitrary British county. But Louisiana has such a distinctive coast, anyone might recognise it as the location of New Orleans...then it is one more small step to knowing the state name.
