Where in the World (337)

All answers were roughly in the correct region of the world but not all identified the city correctly. The domes on the light coloured building in the top right quadrant gave an indication that the city was in the Middle East somewhere. The pale covered building with the tall spike-like top was likened by some to a kebab spit. As a result, Turkey was a country suggested, as was Dubai. Neither were correct. The country is, in fact, Qatar and the city is Doha.

Doha, Qatar

Congratulations this week to Todd (@toddunctious), Jackie (@jackiesjourneys), Tim (@timofnewbury) and Dave (@travelling_dave) who all identified the city correctly as Doha, capital of Qatar.

The distorted photograph this week is an iconic view of the city that is often seen on guidebooks and on Instagram. This view, taken from numerous different vantage points and under different lighting conditions, has been photographed countless millions of times. Good luck.
