How good is your knowledge of the cities of the world? Judging by the number of cities you identify correctly from distorted photographs some of you know them pretty well. Alternatively, your research skills are top notch.
Using a new plugin I have created a quiz of a different kind I thought you might try. Can you identify the city by a single statue? Travel Quiz: Statues will take you only a few minutes. It starts with some easy ones and becomes more challenging towards the end. Give it a go and let me know what you think.
Fear not though, “Where in the World…” will continue to be posted each week as usual. Travel Quiz: Statues is one in an occasional (very occasional) series of quizzes on travel themes.
Where in the World (313)
It was during this week 17 years ago that the skyline of this city changed dramatically. Usually pictured from across the Hudson River there were two identical towers – the World Trade Center. After the awful events of September 11th, 2001 and in the years to follow the tall structure in the distorted photograph was built to replace the Twin Towers. One World Trade Center, as it is known, now rises high above the city. The city, of course, is New York.
Congratulations to Bev (@BevSackville), Janette (@travchats), Davide (@travelling_dave), Tim (@timofnewbury), someone at Global Grapevine (@GlobalGrapevine), Martin (@mfowmes) and Jackie (@JackiesJourneys) who all identified New York.
The distorted image for this week is of a well-known city but with its most iconic structure out of shot. There are, however, enough clues to help identify the city despite this. Good luck.
