    Old French cars, blue number plates and a "cÚdez le passage" road sign so Senegal seems a good bet. Both the streets and the coast actually look very much like when we've had Dakar before

            I knew it seemed familiar.

              Sorry about that, it’s been a long thread.

                Tut tut tut. Imagine not keeping an up-to-date index of the 300 pages of past locations and thinking that's acceptable!

                    OK how about this mildly interesting place:

                      And looking the other way:

                        I was going to say London, possibly somewhere near the British museum, but that hotel was a bit of a giveaway so I was right with the London bit, but Bayswater rather than British museum area

                          Looks very West London. Queensway/Notting Hill Gate kind of area with all the tourist hotels and the coaches parked just out sight down the side of Hyde Park

                            Oh! That was quick

                              Ah blimey that was quicker than I expected. Yes, it's outside the 'blanked-out' 23 & 24 Leinster Gardens, which I thought was a fairly niche bit of knowledge until the other day when I was watching an old episode of Sherlock with my daughter to find that it featured heavily...!

                                Hadn't realised I'd left the hotel name in. I need to look more closely next time!

                                  I hadn't heard of them (even though I've been on that street dozens of times), it's quite something from above!

                                    Because my girlfriend's dad loves little bits of urban history like that, when we had a few minutes to kill before taking our train back to my parents' village at the end of our few days in London in 2018 I took them (him, my girlfriend and her brother) to see that, complete with a walk round the back to look at the tracks. It's a nice little one to have up your sleeve if you're showing London to foreigners and have reason to be in the Paddington area.

                                      I've deleted that one, because reasons. Will try and think of another, but of someone else has one ready to go, please be my guest

                                          And one bend further up the road

                                            That's... not a whole lot of clues. Given how small and bashed the cars look we can probably discount North America and Australia. No French cars that I can see so if we're in Europe (which I'm really not sure we are) we're more likely to be in Eastern Europe than, say, Italy or Portugal

                                              What she said.

                                              My guess is that the water is the Med or Aegean.

                                              I would also add Turkey to the mix.

                                                Here's another, slightly down the hill from the previous two.

                                                  Again, not much to go on. Looks like a hairpin bend?

                                                    Here's one more, from more or less the same place as the first one. On this picture you can actually see why we're here, and I will assure you it's a place you all know
