Rules of play
The Rules are below, the main one being. Please, only one photo at a time until we have a confirmed correct answer. It makes it much easier to keep track of.
  1. Take an obscure photo of a BA location you are currently in (or have visited recently)
  2. Post on this thread and add a clue (if you feel itís required)
    The goal is then to be the first person to correctly guess the location.
  3. The OP confirms who has the first correct guess
  4. The OP updates the win to the Wiki
    If the winner has not won before, their name is entered and the post date/time they won is added below. If the winner has won before, the date and time of the post they won is added below their name.
    USER NAME
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    etc. etc
  5. To try and keep it further within the remit of the forum, I think double points should be awarded in the event that the OP can get a BA logo into the photo without giving the game away.
  6. Multiple guesses are allowed, but must be turn about with other members and at least 10 mins apart
  7. Please try and keep it to one live photo at a time.

Another clue: It's the capital of it's territory/state/province but not capital of it's country.
I didn't realise that every clue had to be solved to every post before another 'Where in the world am I?' could be posted. Moderator, please delete my posts if they don't meet guidelines.

This one is really frustrating, is this a BA or OW destination?... I am having real difficulties with mountains so close to the runway!

Yes, I have stayed at the Old Cataract many times before. The Old Cataract Suite was my favourite but the two tiny balconies began to put me off. The space on the terrace of the suite I now prefer is so much bigger. Also, the views are spectacular from this other hotel.
