Just a pure guess, based on the outline of the building--Egypt?

That is one moldy looking building. I'll guess somewhere in India where it rains a lot.

Fred - in real life that building looks worse than in the picture. It is not in India, nor is it in Egypt. It is one of the few architecturally interesting buildings in this capital city.

I've spent some time in Jakarta, Indonesia and the traffic situation and general scruffiness fits. So, Jakarta.

No, this city is about half the size of Jakarta; and this is about the most interesting architecture there... Jakarta has real skyscrapers and some flair - unlike this place. Here's the other interesting building in town:

Perhaps somewhere in Myanmar, like Yangon?

No, not in Myanmar - this is a Roman Catholic cathedral.

Racking my brain trying to think of places which meet your description - is Timor or East Timor a country? If so, I definitely don't know the capital; just hear of periodic trouble there.

No, we are not in Asia but solidly in Africa. I spent some time working here and it is one of the places I would not revisit. One of the few times I was not armed while there I was ambushed, but fortunately their firearm either malfunctioned or ran out of ammunition (probably the latter, as it was an AK-47). While the country has gotten better in recent years, for the most part it makes the ghettos in US cities look safe in comparison.

What's left of the name on the building and the Roman Catholic Cathedral makes me think of a former French colony - Rwanda?

Fran - yes, it is Abidjan in the Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast)! I was doing security work there and would not return again.

Sorry, had a busy day. You're correct of course. I did not stay there -- just walked past.

If no-one got it, I thought I might post this photo.

Dan cheers
