#6703

Trying my Taiwanese out on you phonetically :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#6704

Trying to make me lia gong?


#6705

Manta in Equador?


#6706

Previous hint: Southern Cone.


#6707

Something is not adding up here. Southern Cone, but Formosa is warmer than Venezuela… Peru is not part of the Southern Cone, offshore island aren’t either, right? It’s not in Chile…


#6708

Leaving two Southern Cone countries. It’s not rocket science. And no, it’s not an island.


#6709

Argentina, Paraguay and Bolivia are all colder than Venezuala, when it comes to distance to Taiwan, not?


#6710

@geajvop’s guess was the Formosa in South America. :grin:


#6711

Jeez, that was misleading. So let’s look for a place with a funny name in Argentina or Paraguay or southern Brazil?


#6712

I thought Brazil was eliminated already, and Uruguay was still in? @Dr_Milker?


#6713

Correct.


#6714

I thought Uruguay was out. More likely than Argentina, because of the palm trees, right?


#6715

Yea I was thinking Argentina most likely too. Road surface markings in Uruguay seem different


#6716

It’s in either Argentina or Uruguay. OK, this is taking too long. It’s in Uruguay.


#6717

Wow, I guessed Argentina.

These are some of the things I think I see in the picture:

On the road, from left to right, I see what appears to be a two-way bike lane (the narrow lane with the dashed middle line), followed by a very narrow lane that I can’t explain, followed by what appears to be a parking lane, followed by two regular road lanes for automobile traffic (the lack of a dashed middle line between these lanes makes me wonder whether this a one-way street–if so, what a broad street!–and makes me wonder if there’s another broad street we’re not seeing), followed by what looks like another parking lane.

The river is wide at this place, suggesting it might not be too far from the mouth. Also, there appears to be something like a long pier, jutting to the left, halfway up the picture on the left side. The white specs in the river suggest sailboats (I’m not sure of that, though).


#6718

That’s a pretty long post not to contain an actual guess. :sunglasses:


#6719

That was for the others; however, the hint you just gave may render my post useless (boldly assuming my post had any use to begin with).


#6720

Just make a guess already. Sometimes a wild guess can be correct.


#6721

Fray Bentos?


#6722

:earth_americas:

What did I tell you!?!?
