Instabul (Not Constantinople)

Fun Fact: I am playing as the Byzantines in Civ V, so the default city is Constantinople (which I of course renamed "Instabul" because it had to be done). I just got my second city, which now has the default name of "Constantinople" because I wasn't using that name. :)

When I conquer the Ottomans' "Instanbul" (or if I play as them), I do the analogous renaming, of course. It simply must be done.

The official name was New Rome :)

OK, but that makes for a much less catchy song.

Speaking of city names, I really want to get the achievement "Longest. Name. Ever." for having the city Llanfairpwllgwyngyll. I think it's one of the city names in the default pool for the Celts, but I've never built enough cities as them to actually see it.

Yeah, that should exist. Also, it really is a shame that the "Instanbul (Not Constantinople)" achievement doesn't exist. It totally ought to exist!

By the way, I didn't mention this by e-mail, but Sunday I wouldn't have much time to play (Dodger game and early day on Monday) and then I will be in London on Monday and Tuesday nights. So I think Wednesday is the earliest we can play together.
