    Congratulation Ralf!!!! This is only the second puzzle that never got solved, if I remember right.
    I had little time to look at this one, but I did try a few search words, with not much luck.

    As for the new one from Ivy, it is distinctly tropical and what looks like an old colonial graveyard.
    I'll venture a guess off the cuff; Sri Lanka (Ceylon)??

      I should lose that particular cuff a.s.a.p., Ombugge. I'm afraid that although tropical it is neither Sri Lanka nor a colonial graveyard.

        Re: What place is this?

        I can read no signs or letters on the stones and the plants to me also looked tropical. So i am also lost with my first guesses.
        We have been on Malta with Ivy several times but something tells me, it is not Malta this time, is it?
        Is there a famous person buried on this graveyard? An explorer or pirate?

          Re: What place is this?

          Something tells you correctly, Ralf - not Malta. How do I answer your last two questions??? There is no famous person buried here so far as I can establish, but pirates - keep going!

            Other side of the Atlantic? Caribbean?

              Or on second thoughts the other side of the world.

              Madagascar. The Pirate Cemetery on Ile Ste Marie.

              That was absolutely down to Ralf!! I take no credit for anything other than typing Pirate and Graveyard into Google and only looking at images.

                You just have no idea how reluctant I was to admit to the pirate, Mark. I knew it was then only a matter of minutes. Ralf, what made you hit on that as a possible alternative to explorers? I'd love to know.
                There is more detailed info. at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Madagascar if you scroll well down the page.
                So over to Mark.

                  Re: What place is this?

                  Well, really it should be Ralf's puzzle, 'cos he solved the hard bit on the last one, but since I chickened out last time I'll have a go.

                  As usual probably a bit easy - I'm a bit soft when it comes to choosing these!

                  What place is this? (Or indeed what plates is this?).

                  Cheers,

                    Another off the cuff guess to start this off; a handycraft center or some such, somewhere in Norway? Gudbrandsdalen maybe????

                      You've got a lot of cuffs to choose from Ombugge.

                      In answer to your questions: (1) Sort of (2) yep and (3) no.
                      Cheers,

                        I think Ombugge's done the hard work here. Could we be at http://lysgaard.no/?

                          Absolutely Steve! Well done. The architecture leads us to the country quite quickly, but finding Røros and Lysgaard takes a little longer.

                          We stayed in Røros this summer on the way from the Swedish bit of our holiday to the Norwegian bit, Ålesund, Hurtigruter and Cruise Boats!!

                          Lysgaard's ceramics are beautiful - especially the colours, as you can see from the photo - although £27 for a mug seemed a little excessive even by Norwegian standards.

                          Over to you.
                          Cheers,

                            Steve's reappeared! Well done, Steve. I was roaming vaguely about all over Norway, wondering where on earth to try next!

                              That was a not so funny coincidence. I was just thinking about this puzzle while i heard some more news of the Bounty tragedy in the radio.

                              But i had to laugh out loud on your solution, Mark. I would have never expected that it would have been so easy!!!

                                Per usual, it takes longer to find a puzzle than to solve one. But i have something, bet it does not last the day!
