Hi Everybody!!! Did you enjoy the Teaser yesterday??? I hope so……………lots of people were thrown by the mountains in that photo………..they thought they recognized the city but the mountains didn’t seem RIGHT for the city they wanted to guess.
Here’s the photo again then I’ll give you the SCOOP!
If you guessed the photo was of beautiful Santiago, Chile you were RIGHT! Founded in 1541, Santiago has been the capital city since colonial times. The city has a downtown core of 19th century neoclassical architecture and winding side-streets, dotted by art deco, neo-gothic, and other styles. Santiago’s cityscape is shaped by several stand-alone hills and the fast-flowing Mapocho River, lined by parks such as Parque Forestal. Mountains of the Andes chain can be seen from most points in the city. These mountains contribute to a considerable smog problem, particularly during winter. The city outskirts are surrounded by vineyards, and Santiago is within a few hours of both the mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
While several of you guessed it was Santiago, Chile, the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER was Misaki !! That’s right – Misaki’s Mom’s brother had visited Santiago and she recognized the skyline and backdrop……….and she was the FIRST to guess so she gets this!
You other lucky folks who knew it was Santiago, Chile get this!
And the rest of you who valiantly guessed and didn’t guess correctly OR didn’t have any idea whatsoever WHERE the photo was taken get this!
And because he insisted on getting SOMETHING (and even suggested the name of that “something”) I’m presenting the following to Leo:
Wasn’t that fun???? Next week who knows where my paw will land on the spinning globe of Teaser locations!!!!!
I want to thank my buddy and Cousin Bacon again for allowing me the honor to be the guest advisor on “Dear Sammy” for his blog yesterday.
