No, and not on that continent, either. This city has 15 of them, two cars on each one, counterbalanced with one going up and one down. They are all 100 years old, and still operating with original equipment.

I knew this one but will save it for someone else. We have inclines here in Pittsburgh - 2 - one of them is used for commuting. Similar set up as these. Anyway, it's a little pet trivia for me. I love inclines - did you ride them and like them JT?

Correct, it is Valparaiso, Chile. Yes I did ride them. They are more exciting then a roller coaster. A roller coaster, you know it will go into free fall. The Ascensor, you only wonder if it will. They are a trip into a different century, as is most of Valparaiso.

I think we have a newcomer for our next challenge.

How bout Puerto Rico? Looks like a Magnolia tree behind the palm, but hilly countryside that would not occur on the SE US coast where there'd be a canal. Looks like a heavily militarized area,, with contrails and what look like military barracks on the hill, with Spanish colonial architecture.

I don't think so. Those locks only look big enough for barge traffic.

Thought maybe a smaller canal around Panama city,Architecture and vegetation seem to indicate ex Spanish colony status perhaps central America,
however i have been known to be off by 12000 miles in previous guesses

There is almost assuredly a European or American influence and it's apparently tropical.

Frankly, I'm drawing a complete blank on this one.
