When this puzzle is completed, the circled letters will form a path (starting in the first circle of 93-Across) spelling out the puzzle's theme. Each long Down answer contains a hidden city, reading in order from top to bottom, not necessarily consecutively. The location of the city, and its number of letters, are indicated.
