    It's ok to make hard ones. Commendable even.
    But instead of giving it entirely you can simply give another hint.

    I'll remember to give more hints sooner. But I would prefer to do so in response to actual guesses. That way I can tell which way people are going and head off dead ends. If everyone remains silent I cannot tell which clues got picked up and which did not.

    Now then, you say easy, but I wouldn't be surprised if you're pulling a sneaky one on us here.

    Still, I'll do the standard Alan Davies QI response

    That is correct, I'm glad I tricked at least one person with that pic though as that's exactly what I hoped for when I took it.
    The photograph was taken when I was on holiday there last month, it's a really lovely and beautiful region (minus the worse than Belgium-level infrastructure).

    K, I don't know this, but I'm going to have a guess it's Dubai.

    That is correct. Sadly, I cannot rep you atm. As you're an admin, perhaps you can do something about that annoying state of affairs....
