United Nations office in Nairobi, Kenya?
(I could see the UN symbol on the grounds)

Correct Dave! It is the Gigiri campus, which is the headquarters of the United Nations Environment Programme, the only headquarters for a major UN progamme in a developing country. Also hosts UN-Habitat and a few other things.

Art lovers might have seen many views of this mountain; possibly as many as 100.

That is correct, Anton! Depicted in 100 Views of Mt. Fuji, by the wonderful artist, Hokusai. One of the most well-known pictures is probably his wave with a small Mt. Fuji in the background.

That's the Laacher See volcano in Germany's Eifel Region. According to Wikipedia this is the largest lake in Rheinland Pfalz.

You're right Kathi! The Laachersee is a caldera that was formed around 12900 years ago in a huge eruption (comparable to Mt. Pinatubo in 1991). Ashes were spread over a large part of Europe (from Sweden to Northern Italy).

Sorry for the delay... Here's another place with a violent past. The oval structure is a fountain that doubles as a swimming pool.
