Friday Foxer #19

Every Friday at 1300 hours, Tally-Ho Corner’s cleverest clogs come together to solve a ‘foxer’ handcrafted by my sadistic chum and colleague, Roman. A complete ‘defoxing’ sometimes takes several days and usually involves the little grey cells of many readers. Don’t be shy. All are welcome to participate.

To fully defox the following geofoxer, identify all twelve locations plus the theme that links them.

    • In what I hope will be a nadir in my contributions to defoxing:

      Is the connection Britain’s entry to Eurovision 2003, Jemini, receiving nul points?

      • 😀

        I’ve been struggling with this one. The starry thing is SpaceShipOne, which made its first supersonic flight in 2003, but the first crewed private spaceflight in 2004.

        The kind of gold string dangling down is a replica Pioneer 10, which went out of contact in 2003, but it’s not really in the picture.

        The museum opened an annex in 2003, but that’s not the annex…

  4. B) Gateway of India, Mumbai (link to google maps)

  5. E) Staten Island Ferry Terminal, NY (link to google maps)

  6. F) Arg-e Bam, Iran.

  7. I think we might have a year again – Arg-e Bam earthquake, Gateway of India bombing, building of Dublin Spire all 2003. More research needed.

  8. K) is Firdos Square, where Saddam Hussein’s statue was toppled in April 2003

  9. J) Admirala Geprata, Belgrade, Serbia (link to google maps). The site of a presidential assassination in 2003.

  10. K still to get, and convincing connections for A and I
