The sign appears to be in Portuguese.
That is incorrect. It is not Porto or anywhere in the Azores.

Wow that is difficult. I see an SUV so I think it's in America (or possible Canada), and is close to the mountains. Obviously a small city and by the looks of things it's remote.... Is that the frame of a Teepee on the hill?

-Northern US or Canada
-<100k population
-historically significant to Native Americans or currently has a large population of them.

Hopefully this will help someone but I don't know. Sioux Falls, SD? Billings, Montana?

What s' sure, it is a tropical (or subtropical) location-because of the lushness- , so it ain't Spain or Portugal, could be in Mexico, but then there's that big river (estuary?), a monsoon country, extreme South of Japan,or of China?

come on, there is no way you could have guessed that the city is Yellowknife
you simply looked at the url which had the name of the city in it

5) indeed looks like Portugal, the black white cobble stone patterns are so typical of streets here. Or maybe it is in Brazil where they carried on that tradition. But frankly, Portuguese cities look very similar to each other, hard to tell. Maybe Faro ...

What url? I've lived in BC and Ont. I saw the maple leaf flag and I've been to Whitehorse so that left Yellowknife (and I know what the vegetation looks like up there). Living in Ont I've seen news coverage from Yellowknife and remembered that one ugly building (okay the ugly one that stood out most). Voila simple enough. I've seen pictures of Iqualit so knew it was not Nunavut.
