Where in the World is Gary? #21

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 (#20) is Bruges (Brugge), Belgium

This city’s famous wall was built in 1961 and torn down in 1989. Then artists from around the world transformed it from a drab gray to a colorful structure.

Berlin WallThe old Parliament Building was remodeled in the 1990s with a glass cupola that contains a staircase from which visitors can see their legislators in action — true transparency!



Museum Island, in this city, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site; the island also contains the city’s glorious cathedral.



This city’s most recognized sight is a historic gate which once symbolized its separation but now has become a symbol of unification.
