Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Southbank says either Paris or Melbourne to me but that truck/van in the background is lefthand drive so I'm having a shot at Paris though I cannot nail the bridge.

I was wondering how you could be so sure. I just noticed that they gave the answers - I thought they would be published next week or something. A couple of mine were just lucky semi-guesses. Damn! If I had been paying attention I could have cheated.

BTW, Mexico were still making VW bugs until quite recently and they constituted most of the taxi fleet because they were so cheap, even though they wouldn't have passed emission or safety standards most places. Part of the reason Mexico City had (and to some extent still has) such a problem with air quality...... Out of curiosity I just looked it up and the last one was produced in 2003 and they were regulated out of use as taxis by the end of 2012.
