South/Central Europe, Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, possibly Italy or Austria but my guess would be for part of the ex-Yugoslavia.

None of those, so far. Keep guessing a bit more.

Architecture is more like from Southern Germany, maybe on the mountains of the East side of Rhine opposite to Alsace.

Roofs indicate lots of sun and rain, more than in Germany.

German colony in South America?

It might be one of those villages in Southern Chile or Argentina which were founded by Germanic people, Frutillar, San Carlos de Bariloche .... for example.

Reg, you are right.

It is an interesting place with an interesting history. One could easily think one was in Germany or Austria. Signs in German. German food and beer. People with blond hair and blue eyes.

In the middle of Venezuela. Incredible place.

Your turn then, Reg.

Well, maybe by way of a clue or an apology: Aviation content. Probably should go to another thread…… Someone want to stab, or should I declare OH? (Stab at the challenge, not me, please ).

Mars Base 1.2, after we reintroduced oxygen, mined the water, and terraformed it to gather solar power and capture rainwater. Very eco-friendly for terrestrials.

OK. In the pause while we wait for vm to post, I would again call on your combined brilliance to give me the name of a resort where I spent a pleasant afternoon while my hostess attended a benefit banquet.

I will give that is on the seashore in Kuwait, south of Kuwait city, but it is another example of my failing to be diligent in labeling my photos as I take them.





Thanks to all. It may begin with letter K.
