Or inchworm. I’ve added Dar es Salaam to the list of cities. I had vaguely remembered it being in Ethiopia, but no, it is Tanzania. (not too far away).  For early classical history, I have more references to India, Indonesia, and Brazil. Late classical history has references to Pakistan and Nigeria. The 16th century has more references to Russia, Bangladesh, and Japan. The 17th century has reference to Mexico and the Philippines. The 18th century has references to Vietnam and Ethiopia.  I have also extended connections to Mexico City and New York City into earlier periods, Social structure and social types, and religious organization have been extended back. The interaction of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam in medieval South and Southeast Asia will be an important set of topics when I can get to them. Christianity is more or less waiting on the wings, since this approach is still weak on medieval European history.
