Welcome to Pegman where each week Pegman (the little yellow icon from Google Maps) takes us to a different location. This week we visit India’s largest city, Mumbai.

Your mission is to write up to 150 words inspired by the prompt. Feel free to submit a story, essay, or poem, or whatever the location inspires you to write. Feel free to use the photo included in the prompt, or search Mumbai for your own inspiration. There is very little streetview available in Mumbai, but there are an abundance of photo spheres.

Once your piece is polished, share it with others using the linkup below. Reading and commenting on others’ work is part of the fun.

We had so many great stories last week. I’m really looking forward to what writers come up with this week!

History lovers and fantasy writers, you are in for a treat. This week’s location blew my mind when I landed there. This week Pegman takes us to British Overseas Territory St. Helena. Here you’ll find an otherworldly landscape and a fascinating history, as well as an abundance of photo spheres to inspire you.

Your mission is to write up to 150 words inspired by the prompt. You’re free to write fiction, poetry, or essay. Your only limit is your imagination…and the aforementioned 150-word count.

Harare, Zimbabwe

When I was little, I used to daydream I could buzz all over the world, hovering low enough over the landscape to see everything, but not so low I’d have to deal with the hassle of street lights and traffic. Or sometimes, I’d pretend I could ride the clouds and dive off whenever I came to a place I wanted to explore.

I never imagined it was the sort of dream that could come true, but it’s a feat I can accomplish any time–and in my pajamas no less.

In the case of this week’s location, it’s due to the generosity of of one person: Tawanda Kanhema. Tawanda Kanhema has spent $5,000 of his own money to travel to Zimbabwe and to bring homeland to the rest of the world.

This week Pegman, and Tawanda Kenhema take us to Harare, Zimbabwe. Your mission is to write up to 150 words inspired by the week’s location. Feel free to use the image supplied in the prompt, or take your own tour of Zimbabwe to find a view that inspires you.

Once your piece is polished, share wit with others using the linkup below. Reading and commenting on others’ work is part of the fun!

What Pegman Saw: Frankfurt, Germany

Hello friends! This week Pegman takes us to Frankfurt, Germany. Germany is unique among European countries in that there is very little streetview. Hover your Pegman over the map of Germany and you’ll see what I mean. I picked this particular spot because I loved the juxtaposition of old and new architecture.

The Pegman challenge is to write up to 150 words inspired by the week’s location. You can use the image supplied with the prompt, or visit Frankfurt yourself via Google maps and find your own view.

Once your piece is polished, share it with others using the link up below. Reading and commenting on other’s stories is part of the fun.

This prompt is open to all writers. I’d love to see new faces (and old friends) so if you’re on the fence, please consider joining us this week!
