    Thijs, you are very close, but i can't confirm that there is a Arla cheesefactory in Stoholm. Try to research more exact to find out and describe the correct location.

      You mean they have rock caves in Denmark?? OK, if so I guess Samso, since that is my favourit Danish cheese.

      PS> It appears that Samso doesn't have caves, but there are some in Monsted in central Jutland: http://www.moldova.org/denmark-dairy-recalls-cheese-after-rats-detected-in-storage-cave-23018-eng/

        Bingo!



        We will spend a visit there in summer, because we rented a Ferjehus nearby. Then i will have own pictures.

        Here is the homepage with video:

        Here is the gallery, where you can also find the puzzle picture:

        I think, you and Thijs solved the puzzle 50/50, Thijs was already in the right village, because Monsted belogs to Stoholm. So discuss, who wants to post the next puzzle.

          No need to discus. Thijs, you have the honour.
          I only checked for cheese caves in Denmark and came up with an article about rats.

        See the tyre marks where Thijs tried to squeeze the Highway Cruiser into the caves!

            okey,where is this mill?

              Ah, this is de Eenhoom te Lillo mill, Antwerp province, Belgium. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:A_...gmolen_07W.JPG Google says that Eenhoorn translates as unicorn.
              I wondered why it has that name and found this page about the mill:
              http://www.antwerpen.be/eCache/ABE/8...4MDM0MTUy.html
              Google translates the explanation: "David Gijsen, one of the owners of the mill, was a chemist at the Antwerp Corn Market, where the sign "The Unicorn" was hanging. This lends its name to the mill. Popularly, it is also called the white mill because it is chalked in white."
              I had a hunch the mill would be in Belgium as you were in Antwerp recently, and you thought you'd lead us astray, making us hunt all over the Netherlands.
              I noticed that all the Belgian mills near Antwerp that I looked at had the bar of the sails painted red, white and blue.

                Aaah, the thread is speeding up again: A new puzzle is placed and solved before i managed to have even a glimpse on it. Well done, Ivy. What will be next?

              and i was even thinking not to place this one,because it's just a mill.
              and nothing to see more than that.
              i have taken this one some months ago,with the intention to use it for this thread.
              but it was tooooooooooo easy.

                It was only because I saw that you had been to Antwerp that I thought you'd choose a Belgian mill on purpose. We would probably not think of Belgium until after we had spent months hunting all over the Netherlands! So it was just a guess on my part and I was lucky to find that actual mill on Wiki. Good one, Thijs.

                    I'm sorry, in a way, that I jumped on this one so quickly, because we could all have had such an interesting trawl through the Netherlands and would have ended up being experts on Dutch windmills and their design. Thijs would have sat back chuckling to himself as we wandered!
                    However, have a try at this one, and I can say for a start that it is in neither the Netherlands nor Belgium! Where is this, and a bonus if the finder can say what it represents

                      Off the cuff; Tropic of Cancer and somewhere in the Arab world.

                        Tropic of Cancer? Well, that particular place isn't on that Tropic but you are in the right area. As to Arab, I honestly cannot say. After all, as Professor Joad would say, what do you mean by Arab? It seems to be quite an ethnic mix in that country, but I think you could say that of Arabs generally.

                          It is la Flamme de la Paix (monument for Peace) erected in 1996 in Tombouctou,Mali to commenorate the end of the Touaregs's war.
                          Though this country is still in war....

                          Comment


                            Spot on, Yves. To mark the end of the Tuareg rebellion in Mali 3000 weapons were burnt at a ceremony in Timbuktu in 1996. The monument "The Flame of Peace" was erected in 2007 in commemmoration. But yes, it is a sad, despairing history throughout and in actual fact the warring continues.
                            So, over to you for the next voyage of exploration!
