Where in the World is TravelGumbo? (#228)


This week, we're stepping out of the gallery and into the streets. The Puzzler notes that as he travels, he often comes to new places that remind him of others he's visited before, but that each has at least a few unique points of its own. That said, this puzzle combines the familiar with the  perhaps not so familiar.

With a single exception, all of this week's clues are exteriors, and hopefully with enough variation, enough similarity and enough difference to keep at least some of you guessing all week.

Progressively revealing (and easier) clues will be forthcoming daily to help you solve the puzzle...and this week, there's a bonus: Two clues on Day 1 and three each day after, for a total of 17.

Keep checking in, observing, suggesting, reading and commenting along with your fellow readers.

And the Friday clues. If the literary character in two of them is familiar, you know the country!
