Thought I would introduce this game as I am an expat Englishman.

Usual rules, but you are not allowed any cities in the 50 states!

To Start you off:

London (England)
Nairobi (Kenya)
Innsbruck (Austria)

Off you go!

@navy1954 - last week you wrote:
"Bungee - some of the problem here is timing. Our posts are crossing and I'm not seeing all."

I couldn't agree more. I'm sure it's happened to many of us where, by the time we compose a post and press Enter, someone else's post has 'snuck in there' ahead of ours and made our post incorrect. I suggest trying to avoid a bad post by reviewing the topic's posts immediately after posting one's own to check whether or not another post got in ahead of it. If one has been posted ahead of it, it can be edited within five minutes to enter a correct city and save face.

PS - It looks like you already figured this out; I see you edited your post from yesterday afternoon, presumably to change the city, as Gazas's post got in just ahead of yours. :-)
