Also there is a clue that there is only one university in the country. That also suggests Africa.
You should make guesses instead of tapping the pupils on their hands. Now I get to be the first to suggest Mogadishu :sneaky2:

That's east coast - and I'd be surprised if that was founded as a Pork Chop Fort.

I'm thinking west coast which is why I just don't know any cities there except that Belgian place on the Congo - old Leopoldville (gawd only knows what its called now). Yes, I admit that I am totally and woefully ignorant of Africa.

That being said, I don't think either of the Danes or Swedes got into the Indian Ocean at all. They were very early players and soon dropped out of the 'big game' and that all points to the Ivory/Gold/Slave coast of West Africa.

I'll guess Freetown (Sierra Leone).

Freetown is also incorrect. I'll post another hint.

It is the current seat of the Defence Commission of the African Union, probably owing to the country's stability.

I was just reading an article on African politics and this DCAU was mentioned...

I'm now going to guess Accra (Ghana)!

Correct! We had a lovely youth exchange experience with kids from Ghana last year. Most of them were from Accra so I learned a lot about the place. You're up!

You had an exchange of "lovely youth" ???

Sounds interesting!

Okay, here's the next city challenge:

This city (among the top 20 largest in the USA) is known for being a "Democratic" city in a very "Republican" state. The city also claims to be "The Live Music Capital of the World" (which is rather debatable, but that's their claim). The city is probably best known as the home of Willie Nelson.

Umm... Houston is a very Republican city in a very Repubican state.

Not too far off the correct answer though.
