    Guess where

    I thought it might be fun to post a pic of a watch with something iconic in the background. I will kick off with this one.

    Thanks for showing this. I just read up on this
    I recall being at primary school when I overheard at lunch, teachers say in hushed tones of the war starting.
    One of the most powerful memories of my childhood.

    Does nobody leave Exif data in these days?

    Is the idea that whoever guesses right posts the next one, or is it a free for all?

    I also initially thought Croatia, it's not Zadar or Trogir.
