HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ONE AND ALL! Today’s place is very appropriate for this day.
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 (#242) is Pompeii, Italy
Where in the World is Gary? #243
Latitude — 41° 57′ North
Longitude — 70° 40′ West
A huge stone is on display here. Nearby is the replica of an old ship which carried 102 hopeful people across the Atlantic Ocean.
Governance here was by “compact.” An open-air museum in the area recreates what life was like in the year 1627.
Olden times are commemorated further with a “Monument to the Forefathers.”
