Readers seem to be amused by my occasional survey questions soliciting guesses, etc. There aren’t many clues in the photo above, but I am curious just how close you will get to the right answer (though I think a few of you may nail it right on the head)… :)

    This has to be in Palawan!

    Apr 21, 2010 | 6:11 am

     
  27. Ric says:

    I take it back. This could not be in Palawan because of the number sequence of the picture. Somewhere in Southern California?

  35. Fabian says:

    That photo can be anywhere (!) The classy white tent makes me think Maldives, Palau or Egypt. The statue is a red herring? It’d be odd for a “Greek Statue” to be put in like that, if one was actually in Greece.

  40. Connie C says:

    Altho the statue seems to be in Greek proportions and with missing forearms, the headgear and attire do not look Greek. It almost looks like an attire in the roaring 20’s or 30’s.

    Could MM be in La Cuesta Encantada (Hearst Castle) in California up in the hills from US Pacific 1?

  51. DATC says:

    The pic info says the photo was taken 11:49AM last April 18. Unless you changed the time settings on your camera, I’d say this was taken within the Philippines’ time zone, the shadow on the statue shows the time to be around noon.

    My guess is this is in Bellaroca in Marinduque.

    MM, if it’s indeed Bellarocca, very interested to hear how your visit went … we’re planning to go hopefully sometime soon – feedback is generally good, but always seems to have a …”but could have been better if …” following

    Apr 22, 2010 | 12:26 pm

    So, another write-up on Bellarocca coming up, MM? Did you shed off some pounds?

    Apr 22, 2010 | 7:39 pm

     
  62. Marketman says:

    It is NOT Bellarocca, and at the published rates Bellarocca is asking, I think I would go to El Nido or Amanpulo instead…

    Apr 22, 2010 | 8:10 pm
