Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Faster - you are close indeed. This is French speaking Africa and the city is in the Ivory Coast (Cote d'Ivoire). But you need to name the city. Hopefully Faster remains faster than the rest...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I see the erstwhile crew has come up with the correct answer. I have been driving all day from Florida to northern North Carolina. Just found a hotel with internet. I found the answer yesterday but I can't participate until I return to FL later in June. Good picture there Zanshin. I hope its warm in Pennsylvania.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

ROFL - While Seaduction did the grunt work, Mark was the "closer" I think I recall telling you a story about getting into an ambush/robbery once, it was just outside of this town. The poorest people, but the most generous, that I have ever met live in this area. I don't know what they spice their food with, but I think it might be considered a HAZMAT in the USA.

Mark, the burden of responsibility for selecting the next picture now lies squarely upon your shoulders!

I'll watch the pictures when I can since I have no "smart" phone. Mark will amaze us with mystifying scenery, I'm sure.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Thank you all for the compliments on my successful answering of the Quiz. Pure knowledge means little when I can just rely on Seaduction to take a wrong turn up a dark alley in the Bayous of southern USA and spilling a vital clue!

Suffer, Sucker!!!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

The tall mountains that lead into the ocean make me think this could be a shot of the Azores Islands.
