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 a country that, according to Wikipedia, has lost fewer people to COVID than Nepal. If the country’s longest pier was a vertical rather than a horizontal structure, it would be more than five and a half times higher than the country’s tallest skyscraper. Approximately 900 kilometres from the nearest coastline and 2790 from the nearest Decade Volcano, I’m equilatitudinous with landlocked countries in two different continents. The precise spot you’re searching for is very close to a T-junction, and about five miles from a British-made diesel loco. A four-minute walk from a repurposed prison, I’m on a street that shares a name with a WW2 tank.
You’re probably in the right place if you can see…
- Two people in wheelchairs
- Three unshod children
- Dozens of stationary vehicles
- The words “Bubble” and “YWCA”
- An abnormally large human appendage
I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.
(Last week I was here.)
