Here are the clues I’ve given so far:
|1) This bridge is near an upscale resort town.
2) U.S. President Lyndon Johnson was here in 1967.
3) Peak season to visit is Jan – Feb, when the weather’s the warmest.
4) This “Oriental” country is nowhere near the Orient.
5) Nearby are 2 beaches whose names translate to “gentle” and “rough.”
The answer & winner for this week’s “Where in the world am I?”
This must have been a hard one, since I got very few guesses this week. This photo shows the La Barra Bridge which connects Maldonado to La Barra, Uruguay. It’s adjacent to the “St. Tropez of South America,” Punta del Este. Here are the explanations of my clues: Uruguay’s full name is the Oriental Republic of Uruguay and since it’s in South America, their summer occurs when it’s winter in the northern hemisphere. Playa Brava and Playa Mansa are the two beaches that I was referring to. Their names translate as “Gentle Beach” and “Rough Beach” in English.
Once again Annika Hays got the correct answer! Annika lives in Los Angeles with her husband Michael and their adorable son, Jax. She gave up the Hollywood life for a much more rewarding and fulfilling career as a mom. I’ll also give credit to Caanan and Kent of the popular blog, No Vacation Required for knowing the right answer too. They believe that life should be something you look forward to, every day. They strive to live their dream life and, with their blog, hope to inspire others to maximize life as well. Be sure to follow them on Twitter and Facebook too!
