Yes, but not in Hollywood. It's the Ventura Freeway section east of the Coldwater Canyon Avenue.

Now finding out what that building is...

Quote:
North Hollywood Medical Center was a hospital in the community of North Hollywood, California, demolished in mid 2011[1]. It was located at 12629 Riverside Drive in North Hollywood in the San Fernando Valley, north of Los Angeles. The hospital is famed as being the filming location of the television hospital comedy show Scrubs, seen originally on NBC and later on ABC, which has been nominated for both Emmy and Golden Globe awards.

Once again on a completely wrong trail. At first I looked a bit around in the US (namely Florida), but then I convinced myself that the median marking isn't yellow in the first place. Trying to decipher the company logo on the building didn't help either (since I suspected it of being "L" instead of "R", which it actually is). And TV shows... that kinda explains why I had no clue.

I suppose Chris should post one, but as he did not, here's one easy:

@aswnl: I would say Spain, but I'm not really confident that it's the correct answer...

@Chillo: I thought let's search in Bulgaria first - because you said it would be easy...

@bogdymol: No, it's not in Spain.

Well yes, one obvious (but easy to forget) thing to notice on the satellite view is that the shadow is on the south side, so the sun is in the north

No, it's not in Greece. It isn't even in Europe at all (and also not in an area being under European government control).

I might be wrong, but I have the feeling that my previous answer was close to the actual location... I have searched for it in Northern Africa on google maps and the landscape looks somewhat similar with Algeria + they have similar interchanges...

I agree with bogdymol, but after a long search i still could not find a place like that in Algeria. Maybe a hint?

I think it is in the southern hemisphere and I think they drive on the right (which would rule out countries like South Africa, Australia and Indonesia). I do have a feeling it might be Cuba though.

Cuba doesn't have roads and traffic like that. Sun angle is all wrong, too. It looks kind of Brazilian to me, but I don't have time to go searching around.

Congratulations. Yes, it wasn't easy. It took me nearly over half an hour to find a difficult location...
(I have already some new pics I can choose from in case I win again).

Halooo, is everyone overwhelmed by a Christmas panic already? Or just plainly asleep?

If you don't know, just ask some question (like, say, "is it in Asia?"). Once in a while I check this thread and possibly post an answer (like "no"), and then it's easier (or the process is repeated).
