Well it wasn’t a hard one this week. The St. Louis Meezer’s sent me here.
China Cat found me in Uruguay almost immediately. They were followed with a more specific answer by a non linked blogger named Kaika and Eric and Flynn!
Darn! We knew it and just got beaten to it by ‘Kaika. It is Punta del Este in Uruguay. Just keep away from those fingers. We’d hate to see the size of the rest of the giant who is hiding from you.
Simba (who did not leave a link so I can’t link back) gave a full story:
Monumento al Ahogado (English: Monument to the Drowned) is a sculpture of five fingers partially submerged in sand, located on Parada 4 at Brava Beach in Punta del Este, a popular resort town in Uruguay. It is colloquially referred to as either Monumento los Dedos (Monument of the Fingers) or La Mano (The Hand). In English, its popular name is The Hand.
It is a famous sculpture that has become a symbol for Punta del Este since its completion in February 1982, and in turn has become one of Uruguay’s most recognizable landmarks.
Sabrina, Sam and Simon said:
Their (people) cousins lived in Montevideo, Uruguay, and they took us on a day trip to Punta Del Este, which is a resort town. The pictures are of the hand sculpture, called “La Mano”
Lots of cats thought it was a giant litter box. I don’t know about you, but I don’t typically have giant hands coming out of my litter box! Thank heavens. Derby thought that these would give some great scritches. Laila and Minchie thought it was the Hulk and so did Max:
Hmmm..in spite of the official answer, I’m pretty sure that you’re in a giant sandpit that swallowed up the Incredible Hulk. Please don’t poop there. I’m pretty sure he’s a nice Hulk…
And yes, all the hands are scary, and no Daisy I did not have a run at the Planet of the Apes (imagine Apes taking over the world when we all know cats will!)
Whatever it’s called, I’m glad there aren’t any more of them laying about. Scary bean.

Awww our friend China Cat is such a smart cat lady!
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. (not too much facebook rather more snuggling and cuddling)
Oh and Chey watch out those Dennis-toes! Too much sniffing can get you addicted. *hehe*
Gandalf and Grayson says
We totally knew that… not.
Erm…. we didn’t have a clue!
Mindy, Moe, Bono says
Good for you China Cat! The Hand is very impressive, but we had no idea where it is.

Chey, world traveler extraordinaire, what an exciting life you lead. And so many smart friends who knew where you were…
Gee,there are a lot of smart kitties out there 🙂

The Island Cats says
We may never know where you are, but at least we learn about a new place every week….
Laila and Minchie says
We always look forward to Daisy’s guesses! She’s so funny! LOL
Eric and Flynn says
Well done to China Cat.
I still think it’s a giant litter box! We are good at guessing as long as you are in Oregon…I need to study my world atlas a bit more!

You really get around! Happy 2009. Congrats to Miss China Cat.
Daisy the Curly Cat says
Hooray for China!
I am glad it was not a litter box. If a giant hand stuck out of my litter box, I would run. Very, very fast!
Jan's funny farm says
Hmm. So some kitties knew where you were. We’re going to have to get out of the house more often.
Woohoo, China Cat – good going!
P.S. Chey, I’m here for my piece of ham. 🙂
Happy New Year friends!

You always find the coolest places to visit.
A Few Good Cats says
None of us had ever heard of that place, Chey. Thanks for bringing it to our attention! Also, a tip of the Good Cats’ hats to China Cat for coming up with the right answer.
China Cat says
My goodness, I was so surprised to come here tonight and find out that I did, indeed, guess correctly and become the Guest Star of the Week!
Purrrrrrs, China Cat
