Default Guess where this is

This is my rule: If you look at this picture you are required to make a guess or comment. It seems most of my imputs get a lot hits but only a few make comments. Make comments or I am gonna quit. No I wont do that but I love to read your comments.

Where is this building Located? I took the picture from the window of a bus.

Sorry Ray, I am trying but nothing in the pic to give me a clue apart from looking like massive Wurlitzers.

It does not look like the usual 'concrete block' East Germany / communist country style bulk architecture. I am going towards the far east here or even Scandinavian for some reason

Give us a clue 8)

I can give empathy on that bro

Somewhere in Germany. Having never been there this is the best I can do.

I know this is a wild guess, but I see a little red sign in the back ground and it looks to me to be the Buffalo Bills logo??? So I will say NY state

I'm sorry Ray, I have no idea, but they do look a little robotic don't they?
Right out of "Wall-E".

I'm sorry Ray but I haven't the remotest idea. I originally thought Thailand and then realized that the shot was taken probably in Spring or Winter and those trees are not the type to be found in southeast asia.

I'll really be interested to find out. And though somewhat guilty in the past, I promise henceforth not to be a lurker.

Moscow, Russia

My guess is based on the date on the picture. I remember that I recommended that you take your ice skates on this river cruise.

Jeanne, I looked at the red sign through a magnifying glass and it looks like a train. I have no idea where it is though. I could not make out any words.

After 211 hits and and 13 responses I will give the location that this picture was taken.

Mike and Marc are correct. It was taken from a moving bus while we were in Moscow, Russia. It just before we board the plane to fly to Rostov-on-Don to board the River Cruise on Tikhi Don for an 18 day river cruise.

Guilty. Your posts are always the first I read, but I never reply. I enjoy the pictures so much and live vicariously through your traveling. You've inspired me to see the world -- in about 8 weeks, I'm off to Paris and then on to a western mediterranean cruise. I haven't made up my mind about the order of the next few trips, but by the end of 2010 I'll have seen Egypt, South Africa, Australia/South Pacific and hopefully South America/Antartica (I want to see Mumble Happy Feet up close and personal). I haven't planned past 2010 yet but there's a great big world out there and I'm going to see as much of it as I can. Thanks for all your wonderful pictures and the inspiration to finally do it.

Hi Ray I was just about to guess Brussels. Oh well I love the pictures sometimes I have no clue where they were taken. I like adding the places to see to my list.

I've been in a lot of places in "Bills Country", but I've never seen that. Maybe you thought it was my place out in the country?

They do look like Juke boxes - so I still think we should call it Juke Box City!
