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 (#39) is Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Where in the World is Gary? #40
Latitude — 48º 12′ North

For 640 years this place was the capital of the Hapsburg Empire of Europe (1713) and the Holy Roman Empire (1438).
A famous dessert originated here. It was the world’s fifth largest city in 1900. The city’s 1441 room summer palace rivals Versailles in elegance and luxury.
This was the home of the very first newspaper in the world (1282). Marcus Aurelius lived here, as did Mozart, Beethoven, Shubert, Freud, Haydn, Mahler, and Brahms. This place is the birthplace of the waltz.
