.........but which one?

Looks like a megalomaniac architect or dictator has been at work here...is that on the right track?

And there's what looks suspiciously like a minaret down in the bottom right corner by the bridge.

Islam influenced?

So, it's possibly in a dictatorship somewhere in the Middle East or Africa? Yes? No?

I hate these questions of yours, Ant.  trhr

Me? Use Google Image Search?

Never! I have this thing between my ears that I try to give an outing to and, anyway, I fear the wrath of Cosmos.

Tell you what, Ant. I'll do a deal with you...you tell me the name of the river and I'll tell you the name of the city.

Deal or no deal?

The answer I gave you contains enough info to indicate the correct answer.

Islamic - yes.

Dictatorship - not officially

Africa - yes

Middle East - yes


If you cant get the answer from this you need shooting!

Middle East...and Africa...and Islamic...and a sort of dictatorship?

Sounds like downtown Cairo by night to me.

Look familiar?

I always have trouble with embedding videos, I've got a Flash blocker and can never be sure whether it's worked or not...but yep, that's the one.
