That was just Penn's Woods thinking; it was N. America after all. Isn't it mgk920's turn?

Nope, here is the home field of Real Salt Lake (MLS), located in the south suburbs:

Here is that item that looks like a 'soccer field' in the 'guess' image, it's an office(?) building:

I took some vacation - roadtripped out to the Chicago area (unaccountably, I'd never been there). Stayed in Mundelein (Lake Co., Ill.,) 'cause I got a good rate, and one day - the Sunday the Packers and Brewers were both playing St. Louis - I drove out to Madison and back, using, basically, 94 to Madison, 39/90 to Rockford then state roads across.

I loved Chicago. Too bad about the winters....

15/80 was my first thought, but (1) that thing I idiotically thought was a soccer field threw me off and (2) I knew the concurrency was a couple of miles long. It looked to me like a freeway-to-freeway interchange.

Now, aerials of France or Belgium or England, I actually have a decent chance of getting. Telling the difference between Hungary and Bulgaria by the striping patterns, no. :-)

Kewl! Your thoughts on the southeastern Wisconsin scenery?

Oh yea, I like Chicago, too, with only two exceptions - I cannot stand Chicago politicians (although I do like how the city's new Mayor is starting to knock a few heads around) and I have no use for anything ursine (look it up!).

Interstate 15 between Butte and Helena.

I'm actually surprised I found it because I was looking for four-lane non-Interstates in the Rockies.

I thought that that one would last a little longer. The landscape looks kind of 'Mediterranean' in the image, but that otherwise European-looking motorway would have been tunneled straight through that hill if that was in Europe.

That's actually a freeway going west - Utah State Route 201 (SR-201), colloquially known as the 21st South Freeway.

Latin America can also mean Central America so it's possible you won't get any points

Somewhere in Asia perhaps.

It might be in China or Thailand.
