Where in the World (329)
As luck would have it Channel 5 (on UK TV) advertised with a trailer, the repeat of the Michael Palin in North Korea. This highly acclaimed two-episode documentary had taken viewers to the foot of the statue to the two gentlemen in last week’s distort photograph. The fact that the trailer to the repeat was aired this week was purely coincidental but was a gift to those who caught it on their television. Of course, there were some who identified the city without the aid of television and at least one person who has visited the city. The statue features father and son, Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-il and is found in the North Korean capital Pyongyang.
Congratulations then to Janette (@GlobalGrapevine), Todd (@toddunctious), Beverley (@bevsackville), Jackie (@jackiesjourneys), Tim (@timofnewbury), and Dave (@travelling_dave) who all identified the city correctly as Pyongyang.
As this is the last “Where in the World…” before 2019 I would like to wish all my readers and those who take part in this quiz a very happy and prosperous New Year.
As this is still the festive season I am posting a festive distorted photograph. It does have a connection with today, 26 December or Boxing Day as it is known in the UK. On the left of the photograph is a cathedral dedicated to a saint with a strong connection to 26 December and mentioned in the carol ‘Good King Wenceslas’. With that clue and a little research on Google, you should be able to identify the snow-covered city.
Make the most of the above clue as I don’t usually provide any clues. However, it is Christmas; it is the last “Where in the World…” of 2018; I am feeling generous.
