Quiz Answer

Well thank you fans for a pathetic response to my quizette! To put you out of your misery, it's a children's playground in Valencia. The figure is Gulliver with his hat and sword. There's a marvellous park in Valencia which is basically in a wadi. As in, there used to be a river, the Turia, that wiggled its way around the historic town centre. But after major flooding in the 50s, the river was diverted and the riverbed was turned into a long and winding park. Gorgeous it is. Gulliver's Playground is in there, and just to the right is the City of Science and Technology, featuring some wacky architecture that would not be amiss in Dubai.

I was going to say it was probably in Michael Jacksons theme park, Gulliver being close to his heart as the first man to have been trussed up by people much smaller than himself who then climbed all over him and marvelled at his relative enormity.

Hum... Thre goes my Conquistadores theory... It was a good one though. Aztecs, Conquistadores, Peru, mysterious drawings... would have made a nice Johnny depp movie

Someone should trace a huge chalk outline around it and put police tape all over.
