      It is somewhere tropical, but then that may be obvious.

          Ombugge, I don't think you saw my post at #3240 two days ago (very soon after you had placed the puzzle pic.) with my suggestion of a place.

            Oooops, I did miss that one.
            No it is not on Batam, but the vegetation is very much the same at this place.

              Well, am I roughly in the right area, called Maritime S.E. Asia in Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southeast_Asia plus East Timor and Papua new Guinea?

              Note: Sarnia also has a query at #3243

                You are right, it is within "Maritime" S.E.Asia, which covers an awful lot of the world.

                As for slurping on birthday bottles; NO, I'm working until late every day.

                To narrow it down, you were close with your first guess of Batam.
                Now what more can I do to avoid the frying pan treatment??? (Again)

                    No, very far from South America this time.

                      No takers yet???
                      What more can I say. You have eliminated South America and established that it is somewhere in S.E.Asia and with "maritime" in this context I assume you mean islands.
                      I therefore confirm that it is NOT on mainland Asia, but not too far from Batam. (That eliminate East Indonesia, with East Timor, Papua and PNG)

                        I've been all round Bintan, Rempang, Bulan, Combol, Galong various Pulau ....... and so many islands but although no doubt there is something strikingly significant in your photo, Ombugge, I cannot find it, let alone match it. Any clue?

                          Well, maybe widen your search to more than one country.

                          PS> the fact that there is a steel hand raiil in the picture may even be a "significant" clue.

                            Ah, thanks. I kept looking at that rail but couldn't decide -cane, wood or metal.

                              The significant rail stops me falling in to the water. Yes. It has a pole painted in black and white or at least dark and light sections. Could be on a fisherman's hut standing on stilts in the water, rather run-down accomodation, a moored boat, a small jetty. But each one of these could be anywhere in the area that I am searching.
                              It seems to be on a river, or very sheltered inlet. Again, there are a fair number of those about in the area!
                              It's no good, can we have either a companion photo or a clue. Even both????? Please. Or I shall jump over that rail, never to be seen again......

                                My guess is that the steel handrail is connected to Ombugge's line of work, possibly some barge or platform connected with the drilling industry.
