Where am I?

30th August 1996 at 01:00
Pastel pyramids and ziggurats, glass towers and marble halls, an infinity of pleasure domes borders a bone-white beach, running down to a sun-filled sea. All day and all night the people party (it is why they are here), engaged in a ceaseless search for a brief encounter and the ever-soothing oblivion of alcohol. A thousand years ago, its citizens were master craftsmen who colonised a continent and whose monumental legacies will endure long after Planet Hollywood has served its last Tequila Sunrise.

The first reader to guess where Janette Wolf is wins a copy of Children Just Like Me by Anabel and Barnabas Kindersley. Answers on a postcard to Where Am I? The TES, Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1 9XY.

Cordell Bowman of Robertsbridge, East Sussex, wins last week's prize with the answer of Machupicchu, Peru.
