Where in the World (251)

The waterfront and the mountainous backdrop where the most obvious clues. In addition there was some writing on the buildings that would have also provided a clue. The harbour scene at the centre of the distorted photograph is the Victoria and Albert waterfront, also known as the V & A waterfront. The mountainous backdrop features the iconic Table Mountain. Together the two identify the city as Cape Town in South Africa.

Cape Town, South Africa

Congratulations to Simon (@similtiades), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys), Anita (@Ani_Rav), Atul (@pixodentist), Davide (@travelling_dave), Drew (@drewbrew83) and Beverly (@BevSackville) who all identified the city as Cape Town. Also, Atul and Dave were left off the list of winners last week so an additional congratulations to them both

The Prize

All correct answers for last week’s “Where in the World…” were entered into a draw for a French Press Travel Cup from Bodum (pictured above). I use one frequently and will be reviewing it later this month. It is more than a travel mug as you can make your coffee ‘on-the-go’ using the French press lid. Then, with the lid in place, you can drink it with out getting a mouthful of grounds as they are sealed in by the fine mesh press. All you need is the ground coffee and a supply of boiling water. It makes a change from the usual instant offering in most hotel bedrooms and it keeps it hot. Of course if you do not like coffee you can use the standard lid with any hot drink.

If you don’t win and you would like one then click on the image (which is an affiliate link) and you will be taken to the page on Amazon.co.uk where you can buy one.

The Winner (a correction)

The winner is a reader who has been taking part in “Where in the World…” longer than anyone else. I’m sure he will be able to tell me exactly when but I believe it was when it was still in single figures and I was envisaging the quiz lasting for around six months. Congratulations Tim (@timofnewbury) on winning the above prize. I hope you enjoy your coffee.

Originally Tim’s name was drawn for the prize (see the strikeout above). However as he graciously pointed out he didn’t recall identifying the city in Where in the World (250). He was correct. Somehow his answer to Where in the World (249) had been added to the draw. My mistake obviously so I apologise to Tim and thank him for pointing out the error.

The prizewinner for the re-draw is Davide (@travelling_dave). Congratulations.

In 9 weeks we will celebrate 5 years of twisted photographs and I am hoping there will be another chance to celebrate with a prize for Where in the World (260). So do keep trying to identify the cities posted each week.

This week’s distorted photograph is a picture of two modern buildings that are fast becoming the iconic skyline of the city to be identified. It is a city that has featured here before but it was the city’s more traditional skyline that was featured.


You can leave your answers in the comments below or on my Twitter feed (@lethers) with the hashtag #WITW251. If you are on Twitter then you can Direct Message me with the answer which will be hidden from the Twittersphere.
