Yep- over to you Clive. I must say I had such a laugh when I saw Wally on that roof and thought about you guys! That's why I HAD to win this so I could show it off!

He he...that's actually Waldo..Wally's cousin. (I searched "Waldo" in SFO  in Google images. There he was.)

Over to panoramix24. I am out of places to show...need to travel more I guess.

Okay with you panoramix24?

Thanks!

Ok,

No problem, so let me up the game and see if some one can figure out where Wally is today. The only clue that I will post is that Wally does feel he is more European than anything else. (take the clue with a grain of salt)....



ps: the place pictured here really has an artistic significance....

It looks as he travelled to South America but that is a big, big continent .. Buenos Aires perhaps?

PointBlank:

Not fair. You guessed right. I was already thinking of a number of clues to post to make it really interesting. On the good side I am happy that you beat Clive. I had a feeling that he may knew since it looks like he has traveled extensively.

Any way it is Corrientes avenue in Buenos Aires. The address is named in a famous Tango song by Carlos Gardel.

Cheers

Unbelievable! Honestly, it was really a wild guess. I have Argentina on my list to visit someday but I've never been there. My mum always 'blamed' me for having deja-vu moments, I guess this is just one of them.

Okay, Wally will let you know his next destination soon. He needs to sort out the latest travel memories. Keep you updated soon!

Got it! Wally just came back from another trip and while he was out there he had a craving for food, hence below memory for you to guess where he went. I think it should not be so difficult this time, but you never know ..

With no surprise, Winjeel guessed it right. Well, it is almost in his backyard anyway! So, Wally goes to you !

Sure, when you visit Mount Fuji in Japan there is a visitor's center. (Pretty cold up there by the way f you are no longer used to it .. lol) Inside one of the booths you can warm yourself up sitting next to the fire place with a nice warm cup of coffee. For snack lovers, they sell little 'Mount Fuji' cakes. Just look at the shape how they make 'the snow' appear on it, just lovely.

Mount Fuji has an enormous cultural value in Japan, in fact the Japanese call the mountain 'Fuji San'. Perhaps Winjeel can share a bit more, after all he lives just around the corner ... ;-)

I honestly didn't expect that. Just because I was a little bored this moment so I had a look. Wow.

I'll be going to Shizuoka, which is one of the prefectures that Mt Fuji is in, in November for a conference, so I'll look out for them.
