For the tunnel/bridge, I think it is the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel.

This is the largest mosque in Central Asia-- The Bibi Khanum in Samarkand named after Tamerlane's Chinese wife.

The last one is an unfair question! It could be The Panam Bldg In N.Y. or the U.N. building also in N.Y. It could also be In KL or in Tokyo or any other major metropolis in the World!

Hi

only just seen this so hope its not too late...


263/7362 is Registan Square in Samarkand, Uzbekistan.

I think 237/7766 is Sansouci palace in Berlin(?), Germany.

Both are on my 'will visit one day' list.

remarkable: your reply crossed with mine. Your reply is better as more precise - i didn't know the name of the mosque. (or indeed if that bit was part of the mosque )
