The World's Cities

Try this quiz about the world's cities. I got a two out of ten! That, according to the scoring guide, makes me a "country bumpkin."

There are also some interesting interviews with people around the world who have moved from a rural area to an urban one. You can read those here.

I got 4/10.

But, to be honest, it was all guessing. And one guess was based on my understanding that the vowel combination "ae" is more likely to be found in Korean than Chinese.

Ah. You're in the "commuter belt."

It just reminds me how huge the world is and how little I know about most of it.

I'm a country bumpkin too, 2/10.

Well, I got 10/10 the next time I took it, a couple days after the first time...so at least I'm an educable country bumpkin. :-)

I got 8/10 the first time through, missing the quote from Aristotle, and the one about ideal commuter cities. I never thought of myself as a City Slicker.
