Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?

(Photo by Ryan Bushby, 2007)

A Lady's Life, a faithful reader of this blog, will probably recognize the building in this photo. But how about the rest of you? Care to hazard a guess what it is and where it is?

Mrs. Rhymeswithplague and I visited the place in 1984, on July 2, to be exact. The day before, we had driven up a dormant volcano past snow several feet deep. The day after, we saw millions of flowers blooming their guts out in one of the most beautiful gardens on earth. That’s all the hint you’re going to get.

In other news, my oldest grandson turned 15 today.

Nobody said my posts had to make sense.


  1. It's the BCPB. No. I haven't been there, nor had I ever before seen a photo of this building. I figured it out by doing a bit of research on something I saw in the photo (on which I clicked, then clicked again -- ha!), then Googled my conclusion to confirm.

    That was a mighty long trip, if you left from Georgia.

  2. P.S. Happy Birthday to your grandson!

  3. my oldest grand daughter is 18<><><>she will probably be married soon, good heavens to mergatroid<><><>not interested in your building, sorry from putzy
