Where is this? - # 11

OK.. the last picture was too easy. This one's a little more difficult...

Another picture for the 'Where is this?' challenge. If you think you know where it is (or you want to guess) click on comments. Click on the picture to see an enlarged image.

The pictures for the game 'Where is this?' have all been taken from someplace in Libya and are in an area open to the public. The prize for the winner will be the satisfaction of knowing that you had the right answer! - I'll let you know who the winner is.


Maiuna had the answer when she wrote: i don't know the exact name, but is it the clinic at the corner of Aljamheeria street infront of Molai Mohamed Mosque?

had the correct name when she wrote: Al Mukhtabar Almarge3i

At the beginning of Ramadan I had to have some medical tests done (Don't worry I'm fine!) and when I went to pick up the test results they told me I had to wait another 30 minutes. Yeah! I was so happy to wait! It gave me an excuse to get my camera out and take some pictures. The girl at the desk must have thought I was crazy for being happy to have to wait.

The building was built by the Italians during the Italian occupation of Libya. It's located diagonally across from the Central Hospital on Jamahiria Street. There's a small garden next to the building which houses the 'Reference Lab' which is basically the national laboratory of Libya.

Across the street is Jama Mulay Mohamed Mosque which is really pretty. There's a pedestrian bridge that crosses Jamahiria Street and from it you get a fantastic view of the area. I rarely see anyone using the pedestrian bridges, people prefer to chance it and run across the road, but I always take the bridges so I can see the view (and keep from being run over by crazy motorists).

This is the view from the oposite direction, looking down Jamahiria Street. On the left you can see part of the old market. There's a bookshop on the first floor and a supermarket next to it.

The market building. I'm not sure if the upper floors of the building are being used for anything now, in the past it was a government subsidized market.

The view from the other side of the pedestrian bridge shows a supermarket and the beige/pink building showing behind the supermarket is the back part of the Central Hospital. They have been renovating that hospital since I got here in 1989 and it's still nowhere near to being finished. But the parts that are painted have the same colours that have been used for Jama Mulay Mohamed Mosque.

It was another easy Where is this? challenge.... maybe it won't be so easy next time!
