I wasn't too sure what the focus was in the image other than the general area of Arnhem. Perhaps is is the Gelredome, the home of SBV Vitesse?

In any case here is the next one. You need to identify this noteworthy mountain.

Here is this mountain again, and it is quite large - both the image and the mountain!

Sydney Opera House??? Sydney Australia

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


A building on the Hong Kong waterfront, not sure what its purpose is though.

And Matthew, yes, that was Arnhem. I was going for the 'Bridge Too Far' here, not a supporter of Vitesse at all...

Martin,

It's the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, and I knew what it was because it was featured on Google Sightseeing some time ago :rolleyes:

See here, scroll a bit down

I'll come up with a new one in a bit. I should have known a game like this would move at lightning speed with this crowd... :blink:

-- edit --

Alright, this one should be a bit tougher. I'd like you to tell me the name of the square and the name of the city it's in.

Andreas,

Correct... :blink:

The metro line from the square to the downtown area is pretty nice indeed. At least it was when I was there, 1998.

Your turn.

I've played a similar game on an art history forum where each new game is started as a new topic. Subject could be could be ML1, ML2, ML3 etc (ML for Mystery location).
