    Somehow it looks like South America - scratching a living out of a two bob truck and dodgy roads up to the mine?

      It could be Chile, or Peru, but it ain't.
      That cuts down on the available options quite nicely.

      Not in Argentina either. Not much left to choose from.

    Than I try ​Potosi, Bolivia. Silver mines, One of the world’s highest cities (elevation 13,290 feet [4,050 metres]),

      Yes it is from the Cerro Rico Mine, near Potosi, Bolivia.

      Our oldest son spent some days there a few years ago, acclimatizing for the trek to even higher elevation in the Andes.

      Well done, your turn next.

          A gray day on a dry and rocky coast somewhere in Southern Europe?

              This just has got to be the rocks at Gibraltar.... the give-away for me was the sloping hills at the bottom of the rock.

                  Nice! For a change, I got it.... I had some true troubles searching for a place that would perhaps be a challenge for all of you, but hopefully, this one may be a fitting challenge.

                  Naturally, need name of place and country!

                    If you're right Ralf - and I bet you are - that's an amazing feat of memory! Certainly looks like you're right.

                    Is that the opposite of a Senior moment?
                    I believe they were in better shape last they appeared here??

                  The houses were located in Sanzhi, Taiwan.
                  See link for more photos of the area.
                  Last photo shows the area where everything is now demolished.
                  The weird and wonderful Sanzhi Pod City, or UFO houses (on account of their flying saucer-like shape), was an abandoned resort complex in Taiwan. Pod City was marketed as a holiday resort for U.S. military personnel posted to East Asia.

                      So, where is the replacement puzzle??

                    OK are you finish being embarrassed now so we can have a replacement puzzle?
                    If not, maybe Oistein can oblige, since he spotted the mistake?
