Canary Islands maybe?

By the way cat, just take a look on this Twitter account I have just found. I had no idea you were such a football fan!

Heh, I just went DIRECTLY to this place and boom, it matched the photo. Having been to this country recently, it fits perfectly!

Nah, it's just another cat with the same name, he's a bit too overweight and blond (that's how they refer to orange cats here) to be me

Did you go to Awaza too? Is it as eerily empty as it looks in the satellite shot?

Yeah, I know the crowd you're talking about (especially if you went to the Polytechnic University of Lausanne). I was never like that, and am not a big fan of anime etc, but I love the country and the depth of the culture.

Also, it's when walking past skyscrapers under construction in Shinjuku that I caught the skyscraper virus back in 2007... and eventually ended up on this forum!

Anyway, here's the next one:

No, but the architecture of the view made it immediately apparent to me that Turkmenistan was the first place to look.

I know this one, the shape of the city is unique and recognizable.

Yes that's where I was And those were not even the "extreme" cases, you should have seen some freaks walking around in summer T-shirts with subzero temperatures, or that showoff who would bring his laptop to all classes and pretend to be working!

I ended up here not for the skyscrapers themselves, but more for the topics of urban organization, transportation infrastructure, etc. But to be honest I spend most of my time on the GTC section
