    Here's a good one. Geography-philes and all others are welcome to play. Silly guesses are always welcome. Click on my profile to see the photo. By the way, none of the photos I post are done with digital effects; they are all real photos of real places around the globe.

    Honora: I hope this one doesn't drive you crazy, if you're online today.

    looks barren yet houses are colorful... maybe somewhere south of the equator near South America?

    or at the other end of the world... like Norway?

    Malaysia or one of those poorer places that you find on those Sally Struther's commercials about sponsoring children.

    Now that Im looking closer, the buildings are painted and it looks like its on the boarder of a plateau. HMMMM where are the areas with plateaus? Is it in the US?

    My third guess would be Singapore.

    Hey where did your bio go?

    Well I note that the roof lines of a couple of the buildings are sort of Eastern looking a bit pagodarish, but I am thinking where the water line could be-Mongolia? Or maybe somewhere Inuit?

    Hmmm...there is something very artificial about the buildings, isn't there?

    I did a little secret research and here are my final guesses...this is going to include some already mentioned by either me or someone else

    Jordan
    Zimbabwe
    Indonesia
    Bangladesh
    Egypt
    Rwanda
    Thailand (already mentioned)
    India
    Taiwan
    South Korea
    China
    Turkey
    El Salvador
    South Africa
    Nambia
    Bolivia
    Guatemala
    Tanzania
    Haiti
    Malaysia (already mentioned by me)

    Are any of these correct? Im banking on the plateau. LOL!!!!
    I believe that Indonesia and Taiwan are strong possibilities.[This Message was Edited on 07/11/2006]

    Looks to me like toy houses to go w/ a Lionel train set.

    LOL

    Nope. Sorry. None of them are correct.

    Here are some hints, though. It's a movie set, and the producers decided to leave the set when they were done shooting. It's now a major tourist attraction.

    So the actual architecture isnt real, you meant the place was real. So that set was actually built at this site. I am so stumped!

    IS it Shanghai?

    The leper colony sounds terrible, but very interesting.
    Maybe they'll round us up and send us to Molokai.

    Here's another hint: the film was from the 1980s.
