Solo Foxer #96

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 in a quaffable town. Thanks to a bridge, the road I’m on is unsuitable for vehicles over 4m high. Around 250m from a Chinese restaurant, 100m from a toy shop, and 20m from a pair of lofty red trousers, I’m equilongitudinous with a landlocked microstate and an oil-rich semi-exclave, and equilatitudinous with an island where women once wore bizarre capes. The nearest capital city has a female mayor. The nearest stadium is a five minute walk away and is home to a football team that has a musical instrument on its badge. You’re searching for a country that has a nonagenarian ship in its naval inventory.

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

  • An exclamation mark
  • A white VW Golf
  • A cake shop
  • The word ‘VALGRANA’
  • Mount Etna
  • Penelope Cruz

I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.

(Last week I was here)


  1. Penelope Cruz ahoy.

    This was hard, and then suddenly it wasn’t. An hour or so this week. Great fun as always. Thanks Roman.

  2. Weird managed to find the red trousers in about ten minutes, but then took about another ten to find the other clues despite Penelope Cruz being right there in front of me.
