    What place is this?

    A little competition/puzzle for you all. Along the same lines as the 'Which Hurtigruten' thread, but this one is for shore based things.

    In the image below is a famous building (marked within the red line), can you guess what building it is?

    Too difficult? Need a clue? Well, I would give you one, but there are two very good clues in the photo, one clue should give you a good idea where in the world the place is, and the other clue in the photo should tell you what the famous building is.

    The second clue may not be obvious, but you will kick yourself when realise what it is

    Can you spot the two clues? Have a look and try to work it out, if you guess correctly then feel free to post your own picture puzzle.

    Yes, Jan-Olav, come on lad, we're all wandering up and down narrow Chinese market streets becoming more and more bewildered. Mind you, makes a change from narrow Singapore market waterways (un)happy days!

    Yup, me too. I had a gentle virtual toddle around the Muslim Quarter of Xi'an, which had a similar pavement and similar amounts of rainfall - but loads of trees. Come on Jan Olav - point us in the right direction.

    I just give up without a clue! There must be thousands of photos of street markets like this to Google at, but it's difficult to tie up a high level view with the majority of pics., which are naturally taken from down in the street.

    Sorry, I was not often connected these last weeks.
    As for this puzzle I have to admit that I am lost. I try Chengdu...

    I'm interested but know so little that I don't know where to start.

    But, yes we are in China somewhere.
    Any new takers on this puzzle, or do I have to share some clues?

    I'm sure this is not a big problem to find for detectives like you all, but I would love to visit this place.

    Where would I go if this is what I want to see?

    Perfect Ivy. And the answer's right too! This is the ancient bridge between Windsor (posh) and Eton (very posh) going over the River Thames.

    I do agree though, J-O made the giant leap to get to the right town, so I think it's probably his turn.

    (We were there for an exciting family trip a few weeks ago, and I had a pleasant night-time walk around with the camera).

    I think it's Paul McNamara's statue on the central Windsor Bridge, now pedestrianised.
    But if that's right then Jan-Olav should do the next puzzle pic. as he had practically solved it.
