50 Most Unusual Buildings of the World, Part 3

50 Most Unusual Buildings of the World, Part 3

This is from a post on Village of Joy, with link provided in the folder. The buildings are in the folder in the same order as on their website. Most of the placemarks are very precise, though at least one 'house' has moved and one or two others (as is usual for these things) is only in the area of a location since it's difficult to pinpoint.
