Solo Foxer #39

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 you’ll find me 190 metres from a bronze cat, 370 metres from a bronze fish, and just under two kilometres from the elevating portion of a sizeable vertical-lift bridge. I’m standing in the middle of a crossroads in a city named after a heavenly warrior. The city gets on average 143 rainy days per year and gained a cathedral in the 21st Century. If I walked 30 metres east I’d be due north of the building in question. Equilatitudinous with a local museum dedicated to a foodstuff, I’m in a country that last year held a referendum, won two international football matches, and issued a postage stamp with a fighter pilot on it.

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

  • Four yellow and white zebra crossings
  • A reference to a military operation that took place in 1941
  • A duckboard walkway
  • Numerous birch trees
  • Container SZDU 341652 1

I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.

(Last week I was here)
