GTC CIII: Cicero’s Satisfying Sasparilla Salad

Forvine pulls into the lead by a nose! It's a close call, but the race has only just begun. Who will be victorious? Stay tuned . . .

General Procedure
1.) Study the image carefully, as there may be clues as to its location.
2.) Guess up to three locations from one of four domains - continent, country, city, and place (optional).
3.) Guess the bonus up to two times if you want; sometimes there will be more than one answer.
4.) At any point, at a cost of 5 points, you can ask for a hint, though you cannot specify what kind of hint.
5.) Incorrect answers will be told in blue, correct answers in orange, and hints in red.

Scoring
1.) Continent guesses, if correct, are worth one point; country guesses, two points; city guesses, three points; and place guesses, four points.
2.) Hints may be purchased at a cost of five points; you cannot hit a negative score.
3.) Points will be added to tally at the end of a thread, so do not complain about their absence.

Rules
1.) No more than three guesses a post (all in the same domain), not including up to two optional bonus guesses.
2.) Try not to curse, spam, or discuss sex, drugs, and racism.
3.) Only one guessing post between my notations of correct/incorrect answers is allowed (just don't post twice in a row).
4.) Have fun and get guessing!


If you know it, do not participate.



BONUS POINTS
Forward I am heavy, but backwards I am not. What am I?


Points Tally
forvine – 7
klcity – 4
Kuesel – 4
go_mid_east – 2
mr_storms – 2
FJP – 1
