Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

no, but this place does have an interesting history concerning the french/english colonial dynamic.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Nambawan is Pidgin English so probably somewhere in Oceania (or possibly West Africa). Somewhere in Papua New Guinea maybe.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'd have thought New Guinea but I don't get the French/English connection. NG would be more German/English.

New Caledonia perhaps.

The last picture looks like the Mt. Yasur ash plain on Tanna, Tafea Province, Vanuatu.

I dug this up on the internet from "the Telegraph":
The Prince of Wales introduced himself as the "nambawan pikinini bilong misis kwin" - the number one child belonging to Mrs Queen - as he spoke in Pidgin English during a visit to Papua New Guinea.

During a speech to the crowds Charles spoke in Pidgin English and told them to huge cheers: "Mi bringim bikpela tok hamamas bilong mejesti kwin Papua Niugini na olgeta haus lain bilong mi lon dispela taim bilong Diamon Jubili misis kwin. Mi tokpisin olrite?"
Charles' words translated as: "I bring you greetings from Her Majesty the Queen of Papua New Guinea and from all my family members during this celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen. Was my Pisin correct?
