Hi Steve,
I have moved Debark to the “Amara”/“Amhara” region.
I can’t change the spelling and I found out there is a discussion about how it should be spelled... ;)

Amicalement,

Hi, thanks for fixing the Debark location. Interesting article about the spelling - I've only ever seen it with the "h". cheers, Steve

wrong locations

Thanks for pointing this out Steve...

Just 4 locations are now listed, I just learned there was a Melbourne in Canada and Florida, but also one in Derbyshire, England and here is the clue:

In 1837 a small settlement on the banks of the Yarra River in Australia needed a name. Queen Victoria, after whom the State of Victoria is named, decided that it would be named Melbourne. This was as an honour for thé 2nd Viscount Melbourne, British Prime Minister and the political mentor to the young Queen.

Friendly greetings,
Viviane
