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... ;)

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
and Melbourne seems to have a few locations too.

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,

Hi Viviane,

Here's another one for you. Harar in Ethiopia is in the state of Oromia. Cheers, Steve

Hi Steve,

i am very sorry but I can’t get the whole list so I would have to change every photo one by one... I have no idea howmany photos are wrongly situated in other regions than Harar.
It happens sometimes that region don’t show a proper “correction list” for the moderators.

Of course, if you want to have the location of a certain photo be changed, I will be happy to help...
