Last week’s distorted city was much less challenging than Where in the World (39) which was hard enough to identify even before its was twisted into a “planet”. The steel structure is one of two iconic structures in the city’s harbour. It was relatively easy to identify the structure as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and thereby identify the city. However, some readers were misled and incorrectly identified the city as Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the UK. This is quite an easy mistake to make because…

Perhaps I should slip in a Newcastle-upon-Tyne “planet” at some time in the future. Meanwhile here is the undistorted view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Can you identify the city this week? You can leave your answers in the comments below or on my Twitter stream (@lethers) with the hashtag #WITW41. Please don’t forget the hashtag as it makes your tweet and the answer easier to find. Good luck.
