You've now gone a little too far south.

The photo of the railway station is quite a few stops away from here, though.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

That's it! You're up!

Sidi Bou Said is the third stop north of Carthage. That pathway winds a mile or so down cliff from Sidi. The only reason we made the trek was the two college girls who'd adopted us assured us there was a bar at the marina and we were very thirsty after a day at the ruins and wandering the town. They were mistaken and we were very disappointed, especially with the uphill track facing us.

The beer in Tunisia, when you do find it, is pretty rotten, though the wines are quite good.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Well, that was a tough one. It wasn't until I saw the "Carthage - Hannibal" station sign that I was able to zero in on the area. How were the blue doors a hint?

Let's switch hemispheres for the next location:

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Too many yachts for South Georgia, me thinks, so we must be somewhere in Patagonia territory...? Ushuaia?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Sidi bou Said is known for the blue doors on almost every building.
I was going to guess Ushuaia, too.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

BTW, Faster, I love the book your quote is from. Have you read Mowat's The serpents Coil?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

And here I thought I picked a somewhat challenging location--Ushuaia is correct! It's a neat city with quite a bit of "pioneer town" feeling to it and more than its fair share of seafaring history. The map of sailing wrecks in its maritime museum is a good reminder of the risks in this part of the world.

Faster, you're next!
