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 (#112) is Shanghai, China
Where in the World is Gary? #113
Latitude — 36° 25′ North
Longitude — 25° 26′ East
This place was formed by a volcano in about 1600 BC. It is often associated with the myth about the lost continent of Atlantis. It is characterized by whitewashed villages perched on a ridge and which spill down a steep slope to the sea.
Domed churches are the rule here, many of them painted blue like the sea below.
The architecture is more modern Greek.
