Happy Sunday, everyone! Since we are all staying home, let’s pretend we’re off on an International trip. My books are set in places I’ve visited, and I’m sharing some of my photos this month.
Identify the location of the picture below. Remember to register your answer by clicking “Leave a comment” at the top of this page and then write your reply (I’ll approve comments at the end of each day and reveal the locale in the following blog).
Correct answer receives a point. If you’re not certain, go ahead and guess! I’ll be posting a different photo, along with a hint, every day this month. Whoever has the most points on April 30th will receive a prize (you’re not winning the lotto, dear people, but I will mail you a small gift which will include a modest Amazon card). In the event of a tie, a randomly generated number will decide the winner. So, be sure to check back here each day, & let’s see who can . . .
Name That Location:
Hint: This spot is located approximately 50 miles north of the nation’s capital. Writings from the 12th century mention it as a seat of learning. Even prior to this early date, a monastic community here cemented the town’s reputation as one of the country’s earliest places for formal education. It is believed the area was first settled around 900 AD because it was a convenient spot for oxen to cross a river. Its library system contains 11 million books on 120 miles of shelving! Where are we?
