Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Faster has it. Well done.

Mark was on to the guy with one leg and war ravaged countries. He mentioned every possible country in the region but Cambodia! I really thought he would get it.

Cows are everywhere in Cambodia, it's crazy and no one seems to notice. The cow in one picture was actually behind the bar in the last picture but I couldn't get my camera out fast enough. No one seemed to be bothered that there was a cow bar tending. There where a few other clues I thought someone would pick up on but maybe one has to have been in the region to notice.

Faster....

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The restaurant was the give-away (I guess Rob got impatient with us ) After that the GE shots looked right.

Half a world away...

Cariaccao, Grenada, where all the cruisers go to fade slowly away. Not Hillborough but that town a few miles to the south with the big bay cluttered with junk and a boat yard.

You must be thinking Tyrell Bay, but now you're too far south.

Here's the town we're looking for,



And here's looking inland from the same location as the first pic.. it's something of a local attraction.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The town looks like Hillsborough... But there isnt water in like the photos show. Or not by my recolection anyway. If i got better internet i could look it up on Google


Yes, Tyrell Bay was the one i was thinking before.

No, not impatient, I just thought it might be too hard and wanted to keep the thread moving along. The restaurant shot showed about 80% of the "restaurant". The "Free Accommodations" consisted of a ladder that led to a loft under the thatched roof. The act of drinking there permitted one to sleep it off. Luckily my room was not far a way

I'm surprised the place even came up in a google search as the place is really just a thatched roof, a bar and a sign. The world is getting smaller by the minute.

Back to the pictures at hand. Could it be Union Island?

These rather distinctive hills (in the background of the first pic, seen here from the north on approach) are telling....



.. and this welcoming 'committee of one' (several miles out) should rule out any French islands...
