    So, it is over to you again, Ombugge.
    That's what surprised me to. Probably a converted Cargo Ship.

    Now I have a problem, coming up with something challenging enough to last a while. I'll be looking for something tomorrow.

      Yep. Maybe a combined ferry/cargo ship in her first life. Changed a lot since then. Look at some pictures here:

        Yes, it appears like she was built as a RoRo ship with none, or limited pax facilities.

        I am looking for something to post that may bring a wider interest to this thread.

          Here is something that may be a challenge for a wider audience:

          Where in the world are we now???

                  The trees you see are all planted. Only low scrubs and grass thrives in this windy place.
                  There is not too many distinguishing features, so here is a hint.
                  This is one of the main attractions of this place:

                    What, nobody "bite" yet!!! (Pun intended)

                    OK, here is one more hint:

                    A large Memorial Park in this town is also a prominent feature.

                    EDITH: A bit more from the Memorial Park:

                      This is much harder than I initially anticipated...

                        The aeroplane on the pedestal seems to be an Aermacchi MB326.

                        That made me think of Australia and South Africa.
                        But it looks like the cars are driving on the right side of the road.

                        I will go for Brasil.

                          Remember what ombugge said: There isn't anything tropical about this place. The fish is a clue, isn't it a trout? And the Memorial Park has something to do with airplanes. Fighter plane training during VW II? Or for polar flying? Has Canada right or left hand driving? (My fantasy is taking over...)

                            Canada was also my first thought, but couldn't fit the aeroplane in.
                            Looks like the fish is a "speckled trout" (an aeroplane is also so named )

                            This fish is found mostly in eastern North America including the Great Lakes.

                              In some places I know, you drive on the BEST side of the road. (Please do not take this a a clue, it is not)
