    Very tough! Looks like the walls of some ruins? Guatemala?

    Ah we have something similar to this in my home town of Keynsham (SW England) and they are the foundations of the original church. But I know this isn’t Keynsham because:
    a) No one is stupid enough to visit Keynsham on their travels unless they get really lost. Are you lost?
    b) I can see iron railings in the picture and if this were my home town, someone would have stolen them and sold them on for scrap metal.
    c) Someone else would have probably stolen the stones and used them to make a nice rockery in their back garden – probably my mum!

      I love your guess…was hoping someone would name a place like England. I can totally see why you would, too. And I think you reasons why it’s not that are great!

      And you’re right–it’s not SW England.

      Thanks for playing….tune in soon for the actual place and the winner! :)

    This is the fenced in area of a ruin. The remnants of the wall look about 1 metre or 3 feet thick. The Incas made their walls 3 feet thick. However the stone work is not 1st class Inca but rather 3rd class which makes it a fortress most probably on the outer rim of the Incan empire. I am guessing Ecuador, near Cuenca. This is at the ruins of Ingapirca! OK what do I win?

      Wow…I must say, you have quite an eye for this–or perhaps an awesome memory, too! :) Right now, you are hot–super hot. Yes, to Ecuador and no to “near Cuenca.” How about right in Cuenca? To win, you’ll have to be more specific, though. Can you pull this off? LOL

      What do you win? A smile face from me–and a link to your site! :)

        I’ve GOT IT!! Pumapungo Ruins! At the time I lived in Ecuador these ruins were not well established mainly because there was a paved road on top of part of them.

          You are the WINNER, Neal. Congrats! Let me know how I should mention you and what page I should link to–and I’ll post it. Thanks so much for playing–and happy that you nailed it! :)

    Those rocks don’t look original to me. This looks like modern stones which have been placed to outline the foundations of an ancient structure. The grass is well-kept, and there aren’t areas where the grass has been trampled by tourists. So, if it is a tourist site, then the tourists are well-behaved. The color in the photo looks old, so I guess it was from the time when you lived in Ecuador.

    Can I buy a vowel? ;-)

      Robert–Interesting to see your thoughts. Actually, the rocks are original and quite old. The area was fenced off, which would explain why there’s no trampling. Re: the color…I will admit (this is the first time I’ve ever done this in the Trippy Travel Game, btw) that I used a “dramatic effect” filter, which increases contrast and saturation just a bit. Also, I shot the photo last summer.

      Good guessing and fun to watch your thought process!

      You can buy two vowels…LOL. No prob…just send the money to my PayPal account! :)

      Hi, Crafty Traveler. Welcome to the bus! Glad you like the game. I enjoy it on my end, too. I’ll admit–this is a sort of tricky one, especially if you haven’t been to that particular country.

      PS: Answer/winner will be announced soon!
