I don't know Tidak's, which looks like an Italian Christmas market that caught fire to me, but speaking of post offices, which place has their post office in the water?

YES !!!
I remember going there once, but that's exactly how I remember it. I think I was standing in much the same position.
It's a great place.

(pasties are pretty top notch as well)


OK, here's another pic
Marrakech ?

if so, more precisely the Djema'a el-Fna

This may be too easy ... then again, if you haven't been there ...

One of my photos, so no tags.

I'm not sure I understand your question. Are you being metaphysical?

Re: Where is this place?

I don't know your cathedral and city. Something Spanish or Italian, I would guess, and definitely a city with a terrible town planning office. So probably Italian, then.

Re: Where is this place?

Or of course, that other home of terrible town planning, that would allow concrete and glass boxes to go up next to classic architecture. Budapest.

So where was my shot taken?

Looks more like Eastern/central Europe. But I'm pretty sure it's not Belgrade, Ljubjana or Budapest...

That was my first thought too (for Trillian's pic, not 22Y's), but having been there quite recently and stayed in a hotel just opposite Buda castle, as well as spending an afternoon walking around it, it didn't quite fit my memory - the newer buildings with all the glass are definitely not part of the castle complex, and I can;t recall any other part of the city that it could be either.

I'm 98.7% sure it is Budapest.
