      It is fairly near Singapore. Anybody that have looked at earlier posts of mine the last couple of weeks can easily identify it.

          Labuan it is. I posted pictures in several threads, which had the shipyard and the fishing boats seen in the puzzle picture.

          Back to you or the next one, Yves.

                    You are right Ombugge.It is along one of the two parts of the Riviera.

                      I searched for; "Castle Italian riviera"
                      Look what google brought up:

                      together with a dozen other pictures of the same place.

                      This must be; "castle-vernazza-cinque-terre"

                        Absolutely Ombugge.Vernazza is one of the 5 villages in Cinque Terre in Liguria.Situated on a hilly coast this area is only reacheble by train or by foot.

                        Another pic.Wineyards along the footpath.Underneath,the railwayroad.

                            This is the Diamond City bridge, aka Chicken Market Bridge, over the Kali Besar Canal in Jakarta.

                              That was quick and absolutely correct. In Old Batavia from the Dutch colonial days.
                              I think I posted another puzzle from here long ago.

                                I thought to myself - ah, Dutch but not Dutch, and decided to try Jakarta for a start!

                                It's time we had another loco. The last time I posted one Steve was on to it almost by return.
                                Where is this one, what is its name and what was it used for?
