    The church yard contains over 40 crosses, many dating back to the 6th century.

    When it comes to the sovereignty of the island, the Isle of Man boasts quiet a complicated and interesting history. To much for me to put here, but the wiki page is well worth reading. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_of_Man

    So it's now back to either Oistein or Ombugge. I wonder where we will end up with the next puzzle?
    This one is for Oistein. He got to the spot, I only made a wild card guess and happened to get the right island.

        Something like a minaret in the Emirates or around?

          Re: What place is this?

          Sorry, no minaret.
          Neither Emirates or it's surrounding areas.

            It looks to me like a representation of a rocket on its launch-pad.

              No, not a launch-pad.

              But rockets has been used in the area.

                We can see flags around the structure.So, one question: is it a memorial or a public building?

                  Yes, is it a memorial.

                        I think this is the Sinai War Memorial in Ismailiya, which is a town by the Suez Canal.

                          Spot on ombugge.

                          Here is a photo that shows how near the canal it's located.



                          And to Sarina. It was not North Afrika, but 400 meters in to Asia.

                          It's a memorial to the Egyptian soldiers who died battling Israel in the war in 1973.

                          The memorial is also called the AK47 Bayonet memorial

                            Ooops, that means I have to look for something new to post her.
                            Please wait a while when I look for something that can be a challenge to our puzzlers.

                            PS> I have not been through the Suez Canal since 1964, This monument was not there at the time.
                            (For obvious reasons, the memorial is for the 1973 War)

                                OK, might as well make a fool of myself - are we in Batam, even Sekupang? (It's just that the trees look familiar. )
