    Oh, i found it: some say, this belongs to Germany, as to say our 17th country. It is the church St. Bartholomé in Valldemossa, Mallorca.
    George Sand and Frederic spent a winter here...

      Spot on Ralf.Valldemossa is a quiet place in Mallorca, less crowded than the beaches area.
      Your turn again.

        Some clues are on this picture, enough to solve the puzzle?

            I would say: Yes. No Swiss or Austrian border to some other country,

          This one is "easy".... because I saw an article on some website about a week ago, that fancied my interest.... but I can't remember the name of the place.

          What I do remember is that it could be the border train station between Germany and Czech Republic.... ..... Bayern something?

              Ooops, I didn't refresh before posting. This should rightly go to Pakarang as he had it first.
              I'm pleased to defer to him.

            You are right. The train station building is divided in two parts because of the border, which is funny, if you are inside. You need two currencies to pay, depending on the room you're in. Interesting is also, that no train is crossing the border, you have to change there to continue your travel. So it is a real border, but you are free to move whereever you want. I agree to Ombugge, J-O is deserving the honour to post the next one.

                OK.... I have found a puzzle for all of you, with not too many clues....

                I need name of building/business and off course the city it is located:

                Naturally, easy if you cheat, perhaps harder if you don't!

                  I guess we are in S.E.Asia. Bangkok maybe??

                  Comment


                    You are definitely on the right track when it comes to SE Asia, but it's not in Bangkok.

                      On right track, but not necessarily IN S.E.Asia?

                    Sorry if I was unclear - with "on the right track" I was trying to hint that you are indeed in South East Asia.

                      I believe this is the Indigo hotel in Hong Kong: http://www.lifestyleasia.com/hk/en/t...-rooftop-pool/


                      OK maybe on the fringe of S.E.Asia, but not normally defined as within that region;
                      Southeast Asia or Southeastern Asia is a sub-region of Asia, consisting of the countries that are geographically south of China, east of India, west of New Guinea and north of Australia. The region lies near the intersection of geological plates, with heavy seismic and volcanic activity. Southeast Asia consists of two geographic regions:
                      1. Maritime Southeast Asia, comprising Indonesia, East Malaysia, Singapore,Philippines, East Timor, Brunei, Cocos (Keeling) Islands, and Christmas Island.
                      2. Mainland Southeast Asia, also known historically as Indochina, comprising Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Vietnam, and West Malaysia.
                      Politically the region is defined by membership of ASEAN: http://asean.org/asean/asean-member-states/

                        Naturally, you are very correct on the hotel and city!

                        - and with that, I learned something new too! Which is not a bad thing at all. Personally, I've never heard of the term "Maritime Southeast Asia" before - everything's got to be a first time, right?

                        The next puzzle is now in your hands!

                          The day you stop learning you may as well stop living. I hope to go on learning for some time yet.

                        OK, here is the next puzzle:

                        Where in the wide world is this???

                          Looks like a South American mine - earning a living from a two bob truck and steep gravel roads.
