I couldn't decide on just one photo today for Where is it Wednesday, so I'm providing three. 

 

What city is this? Have you been?

 

And, extra credit if you know where these places are in the city.

No I haven’t been there yet. I was so taken back by the picture with the unique designs of the skyscrapers and other architecture in the skyline I couldn’t resist the challenge to find out where this place was.  It’s a geographical educational exercise for me because I learn a lot about so many other parts of the world doing it. Chances are someday I’ll end up traveling to some of the places.

 

From your pictures and mention of Dubai and Abu Dhabi I am guessing you were on a Middle East pleasure cruise ship. And I hope it wasn’t a cruise aboard one of the US carrier strike group ships that operate in the Persian Gulf.

@ReTiReD51 Correct! Yes, Doha does have an amazing skyline. I love architecture and the skyscrapers here and in UAE (Dubai and Abu Dhabi) are fascinating.

 

Have you been?

Qatar’s capital Doha. A very contemporary designed city. I thought the wooden Arabic Gulf Boats would make it easier to locate this skyline along a gulf. I never realized. These buildings are mind blowing.

You got it, @ReTiReD51! I was there last summer with my dad visiting relatives in the area. It was the first time I'd been to Cincinnati since I was a kid. I didn't have any real memories of it, as I was too young then and only went to a baseball game. But, exploring it last year, I was surprisingly impressed with it as a city.
