Solo Foxer #110

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 city named after a paedophile. The city is in a country that has no blue or red on its flag, and no weaponry or felines on its coat of arms. About 700 kilometres from an island where most of the 5000+ inhabitants speak a form of Portuguese, I’m equilongitudinous with an island mentioned in Erskine Childer’s The Riddle of the Sands, and equilatitudinous with a country that gained independence from the UK more recently than Zimbabwe. Within a fifteen furlong radius of my location there’s a railway station, a tank farm, and a naval barracks.

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

  • A Mitsubishi Delica
  • More than one Toyota Hilux
  • A colourful facade
  • A street named after a British Prime Minister
  • Bananas
  • Bras
  • The words “BRIDAL SHOWER”, “Panadol”, and “EXCESS POWER”

I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.

(Last week I was here)
