Monday Mystery Photo – Last time Switzerland

Each Monday*, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object. I do encourage you to leave a comment if you think you might know where this week’s mystery photograph is located, or what it is. Thanks to Millie Thom for contributing the photograph this week.

Where is the world is this?

Mosta Dome, Malta

Last time on MMP,  (photo shown below), we were in Switzerland, casting our glances over a wintry day on the Linmat river in Zurich. Tidious Ted and NonsmokingLadyBug and SnowSomewhere both correctly recognized the photograph. Perhaps they have been to Zurich and know that it was founded as a Roman settlement in 15 BC, or that the Bahnhofstaße is a very wealthy street as Zurich’s banks hold the largest stocks of gold reserves in the world. Despite this fact, 4/5 of Zurich’s population works in the service industries.

*Please note that during the Northern summer of 2016, MMP may not be posted each and  every week due to circumstances beyond my control.

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    Agree with “Speedy Cindy”… 😀

    Speaking of this island, so it is the only place where the original european vines still exist – many many years ago – so european vines were affected by the wine-plague and died – the only place that was not affected was this ‘isolated’ mediterranean island… 🙂

    • That is an interesting trivia fact, Drake. It is these precious biological island genomes that can sometime be our saviour when plagues or disease hit. I thank you for the additional contribution to MMP. I will try to get back to regular posts asap. I am travelling atm.
