  1. I only figured this out through some strokes of luck at Googling. It is a ruined city called Nan Madol on the island of Pohnpei in Micronesia:

    6°50?41?N, 158°20?6?E

    Part of what threw me off was that I was convinced at first that it had to be Mesoamerican, so I kept looking in the Yucatan. It didn’t occur to me for a while to look in the Pacific.

  2. Pfff, it was hard this time, but it is the Pohnpei island, one of the largest islands in Micronesia. And to be more specific: the Nan Madol ruins.
