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 voted on a UNSC resolution for the first time in the 1970s, and has sent military aid to Ukraine this year. The current President’s first international visit was to a country with a population of under 5000. You’ll find me less than a kilometre from a railway station, standing on a road named after a 19th Century historian. That road is in a city that’s closer to an operational nuclear power station than it is to an operational coal mine. The city hasn’t hosted a top tier football match since the late Eighties. Around 9 miles NE of a Simon Pegg movie, I’m approximately 697 metres above sea level and 70 miles from the nearest lighthouse. The lighthouse in question has appeared on a postage stamp.
You’re probably in the right place if you can see…
- A red fire hydrant
- Thoughtful cherubs
- A black VW Golf TDI
- An ovine mural
- No tarmacadam
- The Heartbrand logo
- Multiple Marys
- A cafe that didn’t exist in 2009
I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.
