What do you think about this fellow? Seems a little grim for G. Parlee. Maybe a diorama in Java or Dhaka.

Haven't we seen that one before? ???

These two I'll just put down for somewhere in Bangladesh; the water lily (side of boat) is on the BD coat of arms.

Just as a data, between both places there's a four hours trip, including ferry.

Pardon my ignorance, I guess I got lost somehow. But why is a ferry invovled in this journey between these two places. What are the two places you are talking about?

Thanks in advance

Castell Bellver and Formentero Lighthouse, in the Baleares Islands.  Both places can be seen in this season intro.  Take a look at replies #3, #31 and #33.

Welll that is why I asked about why a ferry is needed. Since that lighthouse is located on  the far northeasten tip (Lands End) of Mallorca.....why not just drive to it?  You IDed the lighthouse in post 31.

What is the evidence that teams were in Ibiza? I guess I missed that too.

Thanks, I will go track down that tweet. But you still haven't answered my orginal question as to why there is a ferry needed to get from Castell Bellver and Cap de Formentero Lighthouse?

Because Google can mispelled words as human do.  When I was looking for the locations, they show me Formentero Lighthouse instead of Formentor Lighthouse. :gaah:
If you, correctly, don't notice the ferry thing, I've couldn't see the mistake on it :ty3: .  Put toghether this with the Ibiza tweet, and figured it out.
Still, as I posted in the Speculations thread, is a amazing place for a PitStop.

Well you nailed the location of the lighthouse......in post 31.

So all we have is a tweet about Ibiza, but nothing photographic?

Maybe someone could go thru all the LIVE sightings and the SPec thread and double check and do a complete list. Dr Rox??

About Castell Bellver.  Bellver belongs to the municipality and it's open to the public; but since May of this year it can be rent for a 2.500 euros fee to any private use.

(BTW, if you're a non-profit organization, there's a 50% discount.  IDK if TAR qualify for this  :lol:)

For the record, it is about 85km from Castel Bellver to the Cap Formentero Lighthouse and takes about 80 minutes to drive.....no ferry needed.

And thanks Peach, but I found out all I needed to know about Ibiza.

 :lol: Nothing new on #57, just some additional info.  It's a cargo boat on the Buriganga River (near Dakha).

Here's a better view of a similar boat.

Cap 45 is Amsterdam, from the point of view of Magere Brug.  We can see the Blauwbrug and the white building with red ceiling is Amsterdam' Stopera.

It is  :yess:.  The Sultan Mehmet the Conqueror's Rumeli Hisarı or The Rulmelihisar Museum, on Istanbul.  And the bridge over the Bosphorus is the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge.
