Where in the World (67)
Last week’s twisted photograph was of a city not often on the radar for tourism. However, its houses are very distinctive. They were often considered the world’s first skyscrapers although they are no match for those in places like Manhattan. What is amazing is that they were built of mud and decorated with distinctive patterns. The city is Sana’a in Yemen.
There were fewer correct answers than usual this week. Two people though did identify the city correctly as Sana’a. Congratulations to Nick (@NickRedmayne) and Atul (@pixodentist) and thanks to all who took part.
This week’s distorted picture is posted below. It should be less challenging to identify. The next “Where in the World…” and the answer to this weeks challenge is due on Christmas Day. I will be pre-scheduling the post for those wanting the challenge as I plan that 25th December is to be a blog free, social media free and computer free day. The answer and the next challenge will be there, but not the list of winners. There will be a double list the following week.
Can you identify the city in this week’s Where in the World…? You can leave your answer in the comments below or on my Twitter feed (@lethers) with the hashtag #WITW67. If we mutually follow each other on Twitter then you could send me a direct message with your answer, not forgetting the hashtag #WITW67. You can also leave your answer under the post referring to this on the Travel Unpacked Facebook page (please like the page while you are there). Good luck.
