I scoured the "page source" for this thread and found the link to your picture. It was missing the "pg" part of the file extension ".jpg", so you didn't quite copy the whole address of the picture.

I put the pg back in and what do you know?

I also have no idea where you are but the building in the middle back ground looks familiar?

Ray, this is only a wild guess but I'm going to say China. Even if I'm right I've no idea where in China!

Thanks Liam!

Todd I think that building remind's me of "Atlantis". It's taken me this long to remember.

the shiny building in the background is the Dalian Shell Museum

so I guess it's Dalian, China (good guess Todd)

(odd that there is a huge medieval castle in China)

Liam,

I initially thought it might be Atlantis as well but the bridge in the background nixed that. The reason I guessed China was because I know (often from Ray's previous pictures) that they favor huge areas of concrete, more so than it appears any other place in the world.

Yep:

Dailan, China. It's a large seaport in Northern China. It is a very modern city and a fun port.

Take care,
Mike

It is in Dailan, China. We were on the Volendam cruise from Hong Kong to Vancouver.
