Where in the World (117)
The houses in the distorted photograph from last week’s “Where in the World…” seemed to be the clue many used to identify the broad area where the city was. All answers placed the city in either The Netherlands or Belgium. Amsterdam, Ghent and Brussels were all popular, but incorrect, choices. The statue of a man about to toss a severed hand stands in the middle of Grote Markt in front of a row of guild houses. The statue is of local hero from legend who severed a giant’s hand and can be found in the city of Antwerp, Belgium.
Four people identified the city as Antwerp: Atul (@pixodentist), Richard (@RField75), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys) and Katherine (@KatherineDougl2). Congratulations to all of you and thank you to all those who took part.
From now until Christmas the distorted cities will all have a Christmas theme. This week the distorted photograph is of a Christmas market with a distinct skyline behind it that should help identify the city.
