Contest #807: la Piscine Olympique, Laayoune, Western Sahara/Morocco

Eloy Cano inspired this week’s contest location: in the desert city of Laayoune, Western Sahara under de facto administration by Morocco. It was not an easy contest so congratulations to the three who found the location before the hint and another three who found it after the hint.

The modern structure to the lower left is La Piscine Olympique. The one in the upper right is an indoor sports field. They were built by Morocco as part of that country’s eminent interest in the development process in the Western Sahara.

Laayoune is a city of over 200,000 located in the Sahara Desert 25 km inland from the Atlantic Ocean.

After the hint:
