Where in the World (161)

The building featured in Where in the World (160) is known as the Casa Rosada and is the equivalent of the better known White House in Washington DC. Both are where you find the Office of the President of the respective countries. The Casa Rosada looks out across the Playa de a Mayo where people gathered in protest on several occasions often fomenting revolution in this countries turbulent past. The balcony of the Casa Rosada also features in the musical Evita which of course is set in Argentina. This famous building and the square it overlooks is in Buenos Aires.

Even though it was a little more difficult this week a number of readers correctly identified the city. Congratulations to Tim (@timofnewbury), Davide (@travelling_dave), and Jackie (@JackiesJourneys).

Before I continue and post the next twisted city to identify I am going to digress a little from my own post.

This week I was made aware of two other “guess where” type quizzes. Firstly my thanks to Atul (@pixodentist) for providing a link to The Guardian and a short quiz where you have to identify the city from its street plan. Not easy this one and you have to look carefully or alternatively eliminate some of the options. Secondly I came across the hashtag #guesswheretuesday on the Twitter feed of Yulia (@MissTouristcom). I am still trying to identify the city in the current tweet… I have some fairly firm ideas though. Anyway here is the tweet… but make sure you scroll on down for this week’s “Where in the World…”

The the iconic structure of featured in this weeks distorted city is some way from the city centre but is always associated with the city to be identified. It is a structure of beauty at anytime of the day but looks most elegant when lit up at night.
