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 you’ll find me on a self-governing island that is also a cricket movie, standing in a spot that, thanks to a nearby guest house’s online webcam, is viewable 24 hours a day. 450 feet from a hairdressers named after a famous French artist, and a stone’s throw from a place of worship, I’m equilatitudinous with one of Kharkiv’s twins and equilongitudinous with a village vacated in 1943. A taxi ride to the nearest airport would take around eight minutes, one to the nearest zoo, twenty minutes. That zoo’s cafe share’s a name with a WW2 tank. The nearest nuclear power station is 27 miles away and is pixelated in Google Maps.
You’re probably in the right place if you can see…
- Four anchors
- Petrol pumps
- The words ‘Train Terminus’
- A chimney more than twice as tall as Nelson’s Column
- A coin-operated telescope (the coins in question have a ruin on the reverse)
I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.
(Last week I was here)
Four anchors ahoy.
I got off to a good start so very quick this week and, showing off a bit, that’s mostly on hard-mode, de-foxing on a phone with a desktop for the final pin drop.
Coin-operated telescope sighted at [x] o’clock! A relatively gentle one from Roman, perhaps making up for the recent v hard cluster Foxer?
