No, it's not in Africa. It's the only land border crossing between the countries. So the picture again:

The Russian - North Korean border

I first though it would be North Korea and China or South Korea, but Russia also borders North Korea.

I think this is it, in Seoul:

Don't know the number, though, and I'm too lazy too look it up.

^ Good job, thank gods I didn't go guessing, I was quite positive it would be China, cause I'd forgotten they'd also driven on the right in S. Korea.

They have entire interchanges above the river Han.

Though i can´t find a good system in the expressways of Seoul.

I looked via Google Earth in some rather stupid places (Barcelona?), but then I remembered the God-enormous riverfront freeways of Seoul (thanks, MateoW!) and found it quite quickly.

OK, I guess it's my turn. I don't remember precisely where this is, but I'll look it up (edit-- now I've got a Google Map link and a guess at a route number):


Hey, thanks, everyone-- this is a good game.

Hmm the road markings are quite long, not very usual in Europe, though the road markings looks European. It looks a bit Spanish though.

I'm sure I saw those triangles in some thread in this section

Maybe Croatia?

it's not Croatia. Poland sometimes has strange pylons, but this looks like Calatrava so might be Spain

Whoa, maybe this one's too hard. Two clues:

The northeastern leg very shortly becomes one of the most famous boulevards in the world, and

None of the guesses so far are even close.

Clue three will be the answer to Verso's question.

The triangles are what caught my eye. I spotted them GoogleEarth-surfing and saved a picture. It's not inconceivable that there's a ground-level photo in a thread here, though I've not seen it if there is. Perhaps I should look...
