Isn't that the place famously shown to house the Holy Grail in the third (and final, as far as I'm concerned!) Indiana Jones film?

Yes

I just knew that one of these days you were going to snap.

Glad you're having fun on your voyage, and thanks for sharing the photos! May time pass slowly for you.

^I cannot believe any Russians would promote Ukraine so heavily! Look at the huge motive on the building in the back; Ukraine's Coat of arms all over:


4.jpg Lesser_Coat_of_Arms_of_Ukraine.svg.png Coat of arms of Ukrainew


However, no one in Western Europe will call Ukraine for Europe. It's Eastern Europe; it's another world.

--------------

1) modified:

I don't understand where in Ukraine it might be. If it's in the north, it would probably be close to the border of Belarus. But why would Ukraine provoke Belarus with this huge coat of arms? If it's in the south, it would be at the border to Crimea. This would make sense, but doesn't match my inner picture of this area (I have never been there), looking at the map. But it might be my best guess all the same:
What, 4wd, are you sitting on a Crimean jetty, looking at Ukraine on the other side of the bridge?

2) Half an hour later, I realize that the big coat of arms doesn't have to be hostile, but may be to encourage loyalty. That means the picture could be from Kiev with its many bridges across Dnepr.

Two out of three Curt, Ukraine and the Dnepr river.

It's East Ukraine, just needed to add an 'o' to the river name, Dnepro (or Dnipro).

It's the Parus Hotel, originally funded by Russian interests but then construction stopped, IIRC, can't remember if it became something else.

It's also an area in which a lot of signs are still in Russian and a lot still speak Russian as well as Ukraine.

Currently doing a big loop of Ukraine, then it's off to Pripyat tomorrow.

And FWIW, I prefer Eastern Europe to Western precisely because it is 'another world'. Ukraine has the worst roads I've ever driven on but I wouldn't hesitate to come back given the chance.

Welcome to Kiev:

4wd's answer made me re-install "Google Yandex Reverse" for Firefox, because no matter how hard I've tried, "Google Reverse Image Search" would not give me usable answers to my picture search for 4wd's original image (or any part of it), but Yandex Яндекс came with the right answer at once. Unfortunately, Yandex has given up pleasing any English reading audience; it's now in all Russian.

... it's off to Pripyat tomorrow.

Pripyatw? Are you going all nuclear!

From a rooftop, you can see the new reactor sarcophagus in the background.

Maybe @4wd is going to go all Kiddofspeed on us, rather than all nuclear.

You can also see the top of the iconic Ferris wheel, nature has really come back in the last 30 years.

Back in the USSR ... er, UK now.

Hectic 5 days, did over 2100km in 3.5 days over some really atrocious roads, it was great, (that's the offroader in me talking). ;D

Unfortunately didn't get to see much of Kiev, arrived 2230 Saturday and left 0600 Monday ... Oh well, an excuse to return.

Malpais de la Rasca (Where is contro ?)
« Reply #92 on: October 01, 2017, 08:30 AM »
Tenerife is a beautiful island.
http://walkingteneri.../malpais-de-la-rasca
http://www.rutasdetenerife.com/rasca.php
https://es.wikipedia...a%C3%ADs_de_la_Rasca

I am too fat and I finished the last yesterday saturday.

I don't take too much advantage of the Salto del Pastor with my spear.

Is an easy excursion except perhaps two points of attention.

It was a very sunny day.
The characterization of the area is dessertic. As you can see Tenerife is a very touristic area and before and after the Malpais there are touristic areas to swim and enjoy water sports.

Finally I was lost because I took the wrong way, but I recover following a loud music on the beach where beautiful girls were dancing and sporting.

You need sun protection !!!!!!!!!!!

Note : Ath you have to come here. It's paradise !!!!!!!
