Post Local Oddities Quiz

1 Conversation

The folks at Create have issued us a challenge this month. It's called Living la vida local. They'd like us to write guide entries and fiction about where we live. They'd also like to see photos.

Here at the Post, we thought we'd encourage people to send in their photos. You can, you know – just pop your favourite in the email. To get the ball rolling, we've got a quiz for you. Just click on the icon at the bottom for the answers. Editor's note: Each of these places was 'local' for me once. I move around a lot, which is probably wise.
