Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Hthoni, a great shot! I've been there a few times so I can't play this one ... but it's a lovely place! I think they may need a few hints.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You guys are convincing me. After all I guess I will sail to Brazil some day. Can one of you send me on a PM the reference to the best pilot book for the Brasilian coast?

Sure shot! Mark didn't need that many hints.
Congratulations! You turn.

And if you guys are really coming to brazil, let me know! We should plan a fish barbecue with friends over one of those pictures.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Give me 30 minutes to get the other computer on. It's batts flat and I need sun on the solar panels.

On the last photo Arraial, it's very close to Rio, in fact if you look at Rio and follow the coast south east to the corner, it's right there.
I was there about twn years ago on a boat when we sailed the Brazilian coast.

It's one of the most attractive spots you can imagine. The people in the town are just amazingly friendly. And it's a bus ride to Rio.
Having the boat in Rio is one of the amazing experiences, but the pollution really is hell.

The Olympics in 2016 truly will be great.

Ok off to find a photo.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

3 hours. is it time for another hint?
Faster, me and the CIA are mates. we neither confirm nor deny...



OK Next hint.

If Nicolle is wearing the same clothes either I am a cheapskate, or both locations are close.
