Where in the World is Gary? #139

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 (#138) is Chambord Chateau, Loire Valley, France

Simon Bolivar, one of South America’s greatest freedom fighters, is buried in this city’s pantheon. Favellas line the roads into and out of the city.



Mount Avila overlooks the city.
