    OK. The night club with the silly American Indian thing is actually on Koh Samui, but Koh Tao is part of the same island group, so accepted.

    I used to transfer to/from some nearby oil/gas fields by helicopters at Koh Samui some years back. I did not take many pictures from there at the time, hence the earlier pictures were scanned from a tourist brochure from Koh Samui.

    All yours again Yves.

        So, as a clue:it is a Greek temple but it does'nt stand in Greece though in Mediterranean.

          Oops - forgot! Started to look a while ago, then got sidetracked.

          I think we may be in France? Or Italy!

            Italy is correct Mark.

              I do believe we may be in Sicily, could we be looking at the 'Temple of Segesta'?

                Absolutely Steve.
                Segeste is located in Sicilia not far away from Palermo in a very nice preserved area.This photo was taken in springtime, hence flowers and colors in the landscape.
                Over to you....

                  Congratulations Steve! Looks like Yves had been trying to focus “got-back-home-me” on a destination from my next trip!!!!

                Well done, Steve. I'd not had time to do any searching on this one after my initial rather hopeless trawl of ideas, but seeing Yves' hint brought me quickly back as it narrowed the search. Funnily enough I'd focused on Segesta yesterday, though not via Wiki, but it was difficult to reconcile the surroundings with Yves' photo and I gave up shortly - I had a new wooden linepost to cement into its hole and that took some time, having to prop it up each time while I mixed the next batch of cement.
                It was very interesting to find the number of Greek temple remains in lesser known areas of the Mediterranean countries.

                  I have got a few things going on at the moment, so i am going to pass this one over to anyone who feels like posting the next one. No point in me posting because i may not be around to answer any questions. (not that i have one lined up anyway).

                  So it's over to whoever wishes to jump in.

                      On these pallets,are there things to eat? I was thinking about cheese or mushrooms...

                        I think you're right, Yves. I plump for cheese. Is this in Wales?

                          Sorry for the late reply, i was more busy during the weekend than expected.

                          Yes it is cheese! No it is not in Wales.

                            Are we in Switzerland?

                              Good guess, but not correct. At least the continent is the right one.
