        I think Thijs has had us all running around for no particularly good reason, while he has been staying close to home.
        Could it be this church??: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/4489003

          Typical Thijs. This is not far from Gorinchem, where Thijs' sister met me at the station to drive me down to the ferry.
          I thought I had looked at just about every church in the Netherlands with an ogee roof/a dome/many-sided/lanterns, etc.....
          Very well found, Ombugge.

              yes ,i was taht day,image came from GE form those bleu squars

            OK I have found a suitably obscure street scene that may last an hour or two (I hope):


            The Starbucks is not much of a clue, since there are thousands of those dotted around the world.

              Hi Ombugge.

              This street doesn't look so obscure.We experienced worst before!!!!!


              Well, the white car has a steering wheel on its right.Maybe it's a trickery.


              Do you confirm we are in a left driving country?

                I think we're in Malaysia Ombugge?

                  Yes driving on the left side of the road. Yes, Malaysia!!!.

                Well I don't think you're too far from home.

                I think that the Starbucks is at 161, Jalan Merdeka, Malacca (Melaka).

                The big hotel behind is the Hatten hotel.

                The motorcycles will of course be driven by riders wearing their shirts back to front.

                I have very happy memories of visits across the Causeway from Singapore to Malaysia (JB normally) when our visas needed renewing by leaving and returning to Singapore. Long time ago now.
                Cheers,

                  The only thing you missed was the time of day. OK, back to you Mark.

                  Honestly didn't notice that.

                Well, Ombugge, that lasted 16 hours - pretty good!
                Well done, Mark.

                  I don't think we've been here before, but again an intentionally not too obscure one.

                  What place is this?

                    This has surely got to be Wiltshire, ex-factory/brewery/brickworks, listed building (thank goodness), perhaps Swindon? Now converted for residential and community type uses?
                    OK, I'm so wrong - it's in the Hebrides!

                      An old factory somewhere in England which has been converted into something like art shops, workshops or studios??
                      That doesn't answer the question of where, but may bring some clues.

                        You lot don't really credit me with a lot of imagination do you.

                        Of all of the suggestions in Ivy and Ombugge's responses, the only bit that is true is that it's an old factory convereted into something like art shops, workshops or studios!
