    Can we start posting city pics with at least somewhat noticeable character, all these skylines look similar, globalization and modernization really takes away the character of major cities around the world.

    The above is a tough one, could be in South Africa, Latin America, Ozzie, Thailand or god knows where, they can be so similar.

    I know for a fact its not the middle east. ME cities usually have 2 styles; extreme skyline decadence or hundreds of brick-style residential towers littering the skyline, with a few exceptions such as Cairo, Khartoum and Tripoli. I personally cant tell Gaza, Beirut and Damascus apart.

    I think it should be mentioned what region the City is in if there's no visual clue.

    But I would say Damascus and Beirut look very different

    I guess Mexico City for the above.

    Rio A city I really want to visit.

    But I like your question as it's one that can be answered relatively easily by those with basic knowledge of landmarks. Manila was a tough one...
