Hi Hanlin, Greetings from Kalgoorlie. Clearly, Viet Nam and Vietnam are the same place, and it would be incorrect and unhelpful to say that the data is not found in the dataset. Clearly, your program will need to do some data cleaning up front on the country data, and then also on the user queries to make sure that the things that are in fact the same, end up looking the same. Does that make sense? Cheers MichaelW
