Solo Foxer #30

Unlike the formidable Friday foxers, the Monday kind are designed with lone truth sleuths in mind. While Roman, my Chief Foxer Setter, would be very interested to know how long it takes you to defox the following brainteaser, he requests that the comments section isn’t used to share solutions or drop hints.

“Where am I?”

Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View, Wikipedia, MAPfrappe and other tools, work out my location. The answer will appear under next Monday’s solo foxer.

Today I’m NNE of a four-letter city. Reachable in under an hour by car, that city is the capital of a country that has a colourful bird for a national animal, and the ingredients for a delicious milkshake on its coat of arms. Within a 250 metre radius of my location there’s a river island, a football pitch, a hospital, and a hotel with a “3 out of 5” rating on Trip Advisor. My antipodal point is in a four-letter country. I share latitude with a foreign capital that changed its name about forty years ago.

You’re probably in the right place if you can see…

  • A roundabout
  • A large picture of a happy woman
  • The words “Jetty” and “Check Point Ahead”
  • Palm trees

I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.

(Last week I was here)

  1. Ah, found it! Thought I had it but couldn’t find “Jetty” and “Check Point Ahead”. Was actually about 15 miles away!

    • Doing better than me. I found the jetty, the check point, the woman and the island but buggered if I can get them all in shot at the same time.

      Still, better than last week, where I spent far too long a quarter of a kilometre north of where I was meant to be without ever getting there.

  2. I found a billboard showcasing some fairly grim foot diseases… does that count?
