My best guess is that by "siquente siete" you mean "cincuenta y siete", or the number 57 in Spanish. 57 North ("norte") sounds like a street name.
As for "baja", that might be a reference to one of two states in Mexico, Baja California Norte and Baja California Sur. "Baja" or "bajo" is pretty common in Spanish-language place names - it means "low" - so it could refer to some other place as well. But in colloquial English, "Baja" usually refers to Mexico.
I know it's not much, but I hope this helps.

Tunisia. Google is always a good place to start with these kinds of searches. Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:41, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Which church in Prague is this?[edit]

In this video (at 1:18), there is a shot of a church in Prague. But which church is it? I am looking through pictures of various churches in Prague but cannot get a positive identification.

Also, can someone identify the other locations in the video, such as the bridge? The only one I can recognize is the station, which is apparently the Praha hlavní nádraží. Asked by: 2002:70D0:581D:0:8188:828F:A341:179A 14:34, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi, the bridge at 0:44 is "Karluv most" (Charles bridge) and you are right, the train station is the main station (including Art Nouveau "Fantova kavarna" - 1:11). The Vltava river shore at 2:01 is called Kampa. 2:08 - St. Vitus cathedral at the Prague Castle, and St. Nicolas chirche (in part called Mala Strana) was shot from Petrin hill. At 2:15, I think, you can see the stairs from Charles Bridge leading to Kampa. Also I can recognize "Strelecky ostrov", where she is tearing the paper to pieces.
Sadly, no idea about the church. Danapit (talk) 15:56, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Asian SIM card?[edit]

I'm planning a trip for the autumn, will pass through Hong Kong but spend most time in mainland China & the Philippines. I could get a SIM card each for China & Philippines, but is there one I can get in HK or the Philippines that will work in both places at reasonable cost? In my experience, Chinese ones won't; international roaming with them is painfully expensive.

Phone will be GSM and will not have Internet if I can avoid it. I am not a heavy user, almost never make long calls, just arrange to meet people, get directions, etc.
