I can't find the answer for the remaining blank though. A hint, maybe?

Oh, Virgin Mary?

I won't be in tomorrow because of Thanksgiving, so feel free to post another clue!

I'll check back when I come to work on Friday. Happy Thanksgiving (granted, it's an American tradition, not European...)!

Just bringing this to the top.

Anyone else wants to post a clue? If not, I'll try to think of one to post later.

WELCOME BACK!

Everything is correct except Cortona. (Cortona is in eastern Tuscany.) Look again for a town (now a city) in eastern <b>Calabria</b>. It's near the town where one of grandparents was born, so you <i>have</i> to get it right. I know you'll get it.

Then it's your turn to post a clue.

Town: 8 (&quot;a&quot; = 2nd)
Country: 5

Doing an Asia trip in a week is really tough, with the time difference, etc. Also the flight is <i> long </i>!
