In March I wrote about a world map where the country names had been translated to their original literal meanings, as far as anyone could be sure. Language, after all, is a complex and confusing thing that grows, develops and morphs over time as dialects mix and meanings blend. I thought it would be fun to follow it up by delving a bit deeper and look at the cities within those countries who no doubt have been subject to the same whims of change and misinterpretation. Unsurprisingly, the results are just as interesting, out-there and weird.
