  2. It seems a slow night, so I've had time to look up the others, although I wasn't sure if #1 wasn't copenhagen - a lucky guess!
    #2. Melbourne
    #5. Paris (ought to have been Rome - home of the Borgias!)
    #7. Lisbon (almost an anagram!)
    #4. No idea with this one - City of York? York Minster?


    The connection issue has been around for a while, but is intermittent (and doesn't affect the other site) I had thought it occured while another upload was heppening, but it seems to have been clear for a while.

    1. York's the interesting one. Not this continent. It's a well known city too.

    2. My first thought was NYC, but I thought it went from New Amsterdam to NYC. Perhaps Canada? wasn't there a battle of York during the war of independence? - have just chased that one and it becaame Toronto!

      Sorry to have answered so many, I can only think others got put off by the connection biz.

      Thanks for doing a quiz when you're not 100%. Look after yourself in the current climate (not weather)

    4. Do you mind if I pass on that - the expense would likely appear later!
