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 today’s 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 (all Solo Foxer solutions are Street Viewable), MAPfrappe, and other online tools, work out my location. The answer will appear under next Monday’s solo foxer.
Today I’m in the midst of a photo shoot. The photo shoot is taking place on a narrow street that shares a name with an Oscar-winning 1990s movie. Outside a pizzeria that’s a stone’s throw from a six-lane highway named after a man who died in 1983, I’m about 2000m from a museum of immigration, 6250m from a replica of the Statue of Liberty, and 3100m from a warship built in England during Queen Victoria’s reign. The city where you’ll find me, last saw snow fifteen years ago, has a metro system, and is the setting for a three-part adventure game sold on Steam. The country you’re after sent six athletes to this year’s Winter Olympics. Equilatitudinous with three countries where motorists drive on the left, I share longitude with two British Overseas Territories and one Commonwealth country. To reach the nearest railway track I’d need to crow-fly SW 205m.
You’re probably in the right place if you can see…
- A spiral staircase
- A football
- A dog
- A red Citroen Berlingo
- The words ‘SHYNESS IS NICE’
I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.
