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 (#246) is Badlands National Park, South Dakota, USA
Where in the World is Gary? #247
Latitude — 47° 35′ North
Longitude — 1° 19′ East
This place has been referred to as the “Versailles of the Renaissance.”
It was the former residence of seven (7) kings and ten (10) queens. It was once the headquarters for Joan of Arc prior to the Battle of Orleans. The Duke of Guise (aka Scarface) was assassinated here.
