We give you the evaluation first, to brighten up your face a little:

171 - 200: Unbelievable.
141 - 170: You're a real globetrotter
121 - 140: You can find your way in the dark as well
101 - 120: You don't get lost easily
081 - 100: Very good indeed
061 - 080: Good, above average
051 - 060: Still above average
031 - 050: Most people score here
021 - 030: Well, at least you find your own home
011 - 020: One can't know everything
001 - 010: What's a latitude anyway?
000: Do you know that the earth is a sphere?

Here is once more how to count your points: You get 10 points if you can locate a city on its right latitude, and one point less for every degree off-target. There are twice as many meridians for longitude, but you get still only 10 for the right answer, because you can take help of the time-zones. (If you know them, that is, you are of course not allowed to look them up!). And, as before, one point less for every degree off-target.
Example: The city of Rome is situated 42 degrees north and 12 degrees east. If your answer should be 38 N and 15 E, you would score 6 points on latitude and 7 points on longitude.

The answers:

Beijing (China) 40 North116 East
Buenos Aires (Argentina) 35 South058 West
Kairo (Egypt) 30 North031 East
London (UK) 52 North000
Nairobi (Kenya) 01 South037 East
