Are we in a place previously occupied by the French?

Non. ;)

No French that I'm aware of... certainly hard to find bread there at least... not like Laos or Vietnam.

Not the Philippines.

I'm not sure how to answer that. This country ITSELF wasn't ever British, but before it was an independent country the British were involved with the governing entity to which this territory answered... and before THAT country was created, I believe the East India Trading Company had some influence in the area that would later become this country.

I think we're close now... ;)

I'm going to guess Myanmat thought I'm pretty sure it was British for a while.

No, you'll have to go quite a way north west to get to this place from PNG....

Another hint: While admiring this strange building, you would be hearing one of the top 10 most spoken languages in the world here...
