Hi Shax,
You are right :thumbsup: It is your turn :)

T'ain't mythical, Temmu! And yes, as close as I've seen to Shangrila...astounding place! But not India or Tibet...and I need a city name, not a country! :tease:

Yes, we are, but in neither of those locations, this one is a bit warmer.

But of course, it's about time that you revisited my homeland. Now, can you narrow it down to a specific location?

wow, eric the red, that was a very tough one to find:

http://www.mannvit.com/GeothermalEnergy/GeothermalPowerPlants/GeothermalProject-Hellisheidi/

... and i think the answer to your, "why is it so clean" is that it's steam!

i googled images for each of
Reykjavík
Akureyri
Garðabær
Hafnarfjörður
Keflavík
Kópavogur
Reykjanesbær

with no luck at all!

then i tried architecture iceland - and got something that looked like it, but had to google yet more to get the definitive picture in the link above.

ps
in my googling, i could not help but notice:  goodness, there are lots of beautiful women in iceland!

Temmu,

Well done, I thought that I was being a bit cryptic but you saw through me. Another good link for this project is the following:

That is so true .... mind that you are not dazzled by that beauty (a phenomenon which normally manifests itself in being the owner of a Viking pattern jumper that you can't remember purchasing; the other route to pullover possession involves Brennivin and a tell-tale headache!).

Where to next?
