This week Pegman takes us to Angola, on the central western coast of Africa. Your mission is to write up to 150 words inspired by this week’s location. Feel free to use the image supplied in the prompt, or poke around the map of Angola and find your own view.

Note: I couldn’t find any streetview but you’ll find photospheres throughout the country.  The closer you zoom, the more you’ll find.

What Pegman Saw: Singapore

Screen Shot 2019-09-06 at 6.37.56 AM

Today Pegman journeys to mystic port-o-call Singapore, a sovereign city-state in Southeast Asia. Though it was first noted in third-century Chinese accounts, the island of Singapore became an important trading hub for the East India Company during the 19th century. Rich in culture and history, the republic has become known as “the Switzerland of Asia.”
Feel free to stroll around until you find something that inspires you to write up to 150 words.

Once you’re satisfied, share your work with the group.

Do your best and have fun!

Vientiane, Laos

Today Pegman treks to  Laos, a country with no major urban centers, modern highways, or railways.  Nonetheless, this landlocked kingdom garnered the full attention of the US military for the better part of fifty years. Despite not being at war, the US Air Force dropped more bombs on Laos between 1960 and 1973 than on all of Europe and Japan combined during the entire Second World War.

As always, take a look around and find something that inspires you to write up to 150 words. When you’re satisfied, copy the link to the InLinkz site and post your work for others to read. Have fun, and thanks for playing!
