Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View and tools such as MAPfrappe, work out my location.
Although Roman, THC’s chief puzzlewright, would be interested to know how long it takes you to solve this solo foxer, he’d rather you didn’t put spoilers or solutions in the comments.
Today you’ll find me less than 200 metres from a hydrofoil and less than ten miles from a country that has won the Eurovision Song Contest. Directly below the cables of a cable car, I’m on a street named after a writer/poet. Said street is in a city that isn’t a capital, and was British-administered for a couple of years in the first half of the 20th Century. The country you are seeking is transcontinental, and has photos of a double-decker EMU, and a serving President born and raised in France, on its Wikipedia page. I’m equilatitudinous with a city where a world famous explorer died.
You’re probably in the right place if you can see…
- A spider
- Tread plate
- Railway sleepers
- A white Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
- A derelict building
- A no.8 bus
- A glass and steel sphere containing a restaurant
- The word “CASINO”
- The words “PREMIUM BANANAS”
I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.
