  1. C’mon guys, Buenos Aires, Brazil? Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina. The capital of Brazil is Brasilia.

    • Fixed this typo. Thank you. Also, note that these are not all capitals. Theses are world destinations that travelers say are tops. Brasilia isn’t on the list, but Rio de Janeiro came in at number 17.
