This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.
I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!
The answer to yesterday’s place (#139) is Caracas, Venezuela
Where in the World is Gary? #140
Latitude — 38° 01′ North
Longitude — 78° 28′ West
This place is associated with one of America’s greatest forefathers. A Neo-Classical “villa” (and a UNESCO World Heritage Site) is at the heart of this place.
The nearby town contains another creation of this legendary and talented forefather, a “university” with another “classical-designed” building at its center.
A great university is located here, originally called an “academic village;” its most famous building (The Rotunda) was designed to look like the Roman Pantheon.
