Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Luis, I don't have google maps on my computer so I'm left with pretty primitive search tools. I'm going to hazard a last guess- Suape, Pernambuco. I'm off to a meeting,but if I'm right (and I'm probably not!), I'll post in a few hours.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I zoomed in on Google Earth, the first hit was the shipping terminal to the south of Recife, but then I went to the city itself and I believe that copacabana (which is a plateau in the mountains of Peru, right?) has got it!

it is Recife. Suape was close... so the exact place is 8║02.8'S 34║51.43'W

Life is an experiment, use the right tools and elements, and you'll do fine.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I believe that Copacabana (in Uruguay, wasn't it?) has the next picture

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

So who is the winner??? I believe I'll concede this to Zanshin who was closer with Recife, if you are in agreement. I though about Recife, I city I know fairly well, but the buildings just didn't look right to me (and still don't!!).

BTW, Copacabana is a beach in Rio (and a small town on lake Titicaca on the Bolivian Altiplano!).

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Go ahead, Copa - I'm at work and don't have access to my pictures and you had it. And perhaps one day I can watch the beach babes on lake Titicaca (a work colleague was on the Peruvian side recently, and he didn't mention anything about beaches).

you go Copacabana. I liked a lot Copacabana in Rio, but I prefer Ipanema where the garotas walk dancing

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK then, I'll go next. Zanshin and Don Juan are true gentlemen.

This picture (if it loads...) is of a location quite popular with the few foreign cruising boats that make it to Brazil. I'm looking for the name of the town and the island. If it's too hard, I can post another photo a bit later. A small hint: the rock jutting up in the mountains is a well-known landmark on the island.
