Latin America?

No to all three.

Europe?

Lara May 22 2010 04:56 PM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Yes Hans, it's in Europe.

Hans May 22 2010 05:19 PM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
In a country that has a Mediterranean coast?

Lara May 22 2010 05:35 PM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Yes Hans.

France?

Lily May 23 2010 02:25 AM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
I reckon the mediterranean coast will be the south coast?

This is my question. Is it the south coast of the mediterranean that this country borders. And west of the Nile river (hope I've got my geography right there)

Lara May 23 2010 04:53 AM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Jube, yes, it is in France, and therefore Lily, you are also right, it is the south coast.

Lily May 23 2010 07:26 AM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
I meant the south side of the SEA - Egypt, and all that
So if it's France I'm wrong

Lara May 23 2010 07:40 AM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Sorry Lily, I misunderstood. It's the south coast of France, on the Mediterranean.

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Within (and including) 100kms of Beziers?

Greenrider Tresa May 23 2010 10:37 PM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Let's see if I can type this right... is it in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region ?

Lara May 24 2010 04:09 AM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Jube, no. Tresa, yes.

Hans May 24 2010 12:14 PM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
More than 50 km inland from the coast?

No, Hans.

P'ter May 24 2010 05:52 PM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Is the water one of the etangs?

Lara May 24 2010 06:31 PM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Not sure what you mean P'ter. Can you be a little more precise please?

Greenrider Tresa May 24 2010 09:48 PM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
More than 25km inland?

Lara May 25 2010 03:18 AM

No Tresa.

Hans May 25 2010 05:14 AM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
At or near Montpellier?

(hmm... to be clear: near as within 10 kms)

No Hans, Montpellier is in Languedoc-Roussillon, not Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur (see above G.T's post and my reply.

Is the stretch of water in the photo one of the coastal lakes?

Not a lake, P'ter, but it is definitely by the sea.

jube May 25 2010 07:12 PM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
:ot: Didn't realise it was the region, a friend of mine lives in ~ he works in Nice.

Fos-sur-mer?

Lara May 25 2010 07:14 PM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Sorry Jube, that's not it.

Lara May 26 2010 04:18 AM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Correct PM from Hans :D

jube Jun 3 2010 10:25 AM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Do we still keep participating in this one as well as P'ter's? I realise Hans has got it already but I haven't had time to look for this and now P'ter's lately and probably the same goes for others.

Just wondering if P'ter meant Etang de Berre, Etang de Galabert or Etang de Vaccares according to google maps?

My question is within 150kms of Marseille?

Hans Jun 3 2010 11:07 AM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Aye, P'ter was fast opening his thread.

No problem with me if there are persons trying to guess this one, too.

Lara Jun 3 2010 05:02 PM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
I was about to post the answer, as no-one had posted for some time, but if there are any who still want to have a go, I'll hold off for a day or so.
Jube, yes, it is within 150km of Marseille, and it is in a region of Etangs (two for the price of one today ;)

P'ter Jun 3 2010 06:00 PM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Sorry: I thought that as Hans had sent a correct PM that we were just waiting for Lara to post the answer.

jube Jun 3 2010 08:36 PM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Umm :blush: I think there was some discussion awhile back that it needed 2 pm's or the correct answer admitted in the thread but I could be entirely wrong there. I've been very slack at playing this game anyway :blush:

Okay narrows it down to within 50kms of Marseilles?

Hans Jun 4 2010 04:15 AM

Re: Where in the World #261
 
Nah, it needed to reach age two for the answer to be published, but it is not a set rule. The number of correct answers given by then wasn't important, provided there was at least one.

It's up to Lara because, as said, the "reach page 2" hasn't been a firmly set rule.
