    Those/these

    Can someone please take a look at these sentences:

    My itinerary goes like this - From April 14th to April 30th, I'll be traveling between three cities: X, Y, and Z, as these three cities are where I've been doing business, and the cool part is that it takes only 45 minutes by bullet train to travel from X to Y, and Z is in between those/these two cities.

    There's more than 1 computer in my house and I'm not Batman45.

    I presume that Batman45 is known to you if s/he is using a computer in your house.

    Re: Those/these

    Please note that a better title would have been Between those/these two cities.

    As before, your threads with inadequate titles will be deleted.

    Please make sure Batman knows this, too.
