Gotta learn some Googling tricks, I noticed the building had an exrtaordinary amount of minarets thus a Google search under minarets came up with the building fairly quickly

Looks like you're underneath a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, and above a carwash, in an English-speaking country. By the way, five years ago, when I had a mustache and hadn't yet lost some weight, you could have easily been mistaken for me.

I tried that, and it did not come up in the first 86 pages. I just tried it again, and it still didn't. Searching through tens of thousands of googled images should not be the "race" that is to be won. It ceases to be a travel-related exercise, and becomes one of eye-wearying perseverance. Like if somebody posts a McDonalds (each of which is unique in some way) with nothing of the surrounding area in the picture.

Definitely the Intrepid museum in NYC.
If you look close you can see the exhaust pipes of that plane peeking over the deck in this pick

Here I am, when I still looked like Jambo. Actually, the primate is wild, living in its natural habitat. But where?

Do you mean saying it looked like ME, or saying it looked like you?

No, not Puerto Rico.
