Mark, I think this photo looks more like the toy village. It's one posted a while back of St. Pierre.

[QUOTE=Seaduction;1809218]This place is much colder than Havana.

Wild guess: somewhere along the Norwegian coast?

That is correct. The country is Norway. Sorry for the delay; had a lot of things to do today.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It took a bit of Google sleuthing, but...it looks like Horsdal, Norway.

Norway was really a stab in the dark on my part, the picture just had a Scandinavian look to me.

Safe as well; zero chance of earthquake, hurricane, landslides, forest fire, flooding or tidal wave.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The name of the location in the quiz photo means "banquet hall" in old Norwegian language.
Its about 67 degrees north latitude.
