Not far Arnd but not Germany. The next pictures are the river below the hill in the first picture and and then in the heart of the village which has the name of a well known wine...

That gave it away (I think). The river must the Loire and the town/wine Sancerre?

Correct. The river photo is actually a few miles away at Pouilly sur Loire, home of another fine wine. I left with a case or two of each cheers

Ah, I'm sipping a nice Franken wine right now - but my next picture is not from a wine-growing region. The tree is a ficus (fig) tree, not known for growing in central European regions.:

Looks like it could possibly be the Hemmingway home in Key West.

It is associated with a personage of note in the USA, but not Hemingway and not in Florida.

If it is the USA I don't know where would support plants like the ones shown. The stone in the building looks like the kind of stuff used in places like St Kitts.

He didn't say it was IN the US, just associated with someone from the US...

Mike, those plants are quite common in FL. I had many of them in my yard when I lived there. However he did say it wasn't in FL. You might find them in southern CA or Hawaii as well but I don't know. It does resemble buildings in St Kitts.

So Nevis maybe and person of note but it doesn’t look like Alexander Hamilton’s house.

It is Nevis, that picture was of the Plantation Hotel, across the way from the Botanical Gardens and A. Hamilton's house - which were to be the next in the series. Fred has it.

I knew it wasn't Hamilton's house, but the vegetation looked like some I recall seeing at a higher elevation. This next picture is definitely from an obscure location, but I know of one person who has possibly seen this.

Me either, although it does remind me of a place by the interstate around here that this guy buried a half dozen Airstream trailers on end, sticking straight up in a row. Bizarre!! laugh

I doubt this will help much, but when one has to scrounge for pictures. OK, I found another with some good clues regarding geographic region

Carol, I figured that guess was coming from someone - that's what I would have guessed. However, right ocean but wrong hemisphere.

Shot in the dark for sure, since the sign and headstone are in English, prices in US dollar and in the Pacific but not Hawaii, American Samoa?

That first image was immediately recognizable for what it represents - a belief that can be abbreviated as "cc"?
But I've not been to those islands so can't narrow it down further without resorting to mystical google-fu arts.

Fred - I was referring to the "Cargo Cult" but I believe that the sculpture in the initial post is too big and complex for that.

OK, folks go ahead and use Google to identify this place. Thanks Zanshin, I hadn't heard of cargo cult before.

Fran, Niue is correct and those $ signs were NZ dollars. I thought Jeannius (Mike) might guess this one.

I didn't recognise the 'sculpture' Fred. Must have arrived since I was there. Then I had to google the beach name so ruled myself out of answering. Did they still have the same dinghy-landing system when you were there...
