    Oh my! I don't recognize the photo but it looks like a map of Africa. Instead of seeing that, I saw the Uniroyal Tire (large tire) recently, which doesn't compare to the above photo.

    Is spoken Afrikaans understandable to the Dutch speaker?

    I believe Africa is home to one of only 2 two seater Messerschmitt Me 262 jet fighters. Single seat Me 262's are rare but more common than the two seat trainer and night fighter. I think it used to be at an air force museum near Cape Town but was moved to near Pretoria.

    I can understand Afrikaans (50-75%) as a Dutch speaker but the written words is easier to understand than spoken. I don't know if Afrikaans speakers understand Dutch but I think it will be the same. Interesting to listen to as the grammar is different as well.

    Answer: Cape Agulhas, South Africa. Monument marks the southern tip of Africa. I thought it was Africa because I wouldn't expect a map of Africa in South America or Europe.

    I heard that the water emergency around Cape Town is over but they still have a shortage. At least that is what one woman from Cape Town said when she was manning a booth at an exhibition.

    Clue: Africa. Official language is not Arabic

    Regrets: Sorry, I tried uploading 4 photos, each too large to upload.

    It should automatically resize an uploaded pictures so not sure what's going wrong.

    As for the current picture, that's pretty small to see much detail unfortunately.

    I tried again for several photos. Remote file is too large.

    ???

    The answer is Melilla, Spain, located in North Africa.

    Perhaps a short break in this game and nordwulf might write a trip report of Africa? I'm sure it would be very interesting. Perhaps include travel information, such as how the airport was, transit (bus or rental car?), any hotel comments, sights seen, etc.
