Do you know your geography?

Well? Do you know your cities from around the world.

I played for 15-20 mins and scored:
259,375
Level 9
IQ 100

http://www.travelpod.com/traveler-iq?3979=6667

I actually thought I would have done better

OK, who got closest at any one time. Manchester UK, 24km. I guess that's not too surprising since I'm British!

7KM, I forgot what it was. Probably was Dubai, UAE. Even that, it wasn't really accurate, I clicked the spot which I perceived was Singapore but it was 100km away.
