  1. Oh, I’m scouring the globe… but I’ve got nothing so far… in case anyone cares!

  2. Scour enough, and you might get it clean.

    I won’t post any more until we get a few solved. That way I won’t distract your focus.

  3. I have to commend you on your choice of location… countless hours and it still eludes me.

  4. I never felt this one was difficult, so it’s interesting to see that it turns out to have been.

  5. I give up on this one.

    Shadows say ‘northern hemisphere’.
    Semi-detached, well-planned and serialized housing says ‘european’, ground colour and swimming pool say ’southern and hot’, swimming pool and tennis courts say ‘rich’.

    I’d say this is a vacation village near the mediterranean/atlantic coast or a suburb to a major town in either portugal or spain, constructed in the ’80s/’90s. might also be in northern africa or elsewhere mediterranean.

    however, i spent a long time searching and didn’t spot this triangle pointing east…

    *sigh*, chris

  6. I haven’t given up yet… I bet you will find yourself looking again sometime, Chris!

    I very much agree with Chris’s logic though I have searched farther afield and spent plenty of time in the southwest USA. I didn’t notice the cut-off compass before, and searched some southern hemisphere locations.

    Here’s what I wrote in a private mail to Brad: “I’ve focused on coastal and resort areas… that may be the problem, but I figure if it’s got tennis courts and a pool it must be near something of scenic or recreational value. It’s a dry area, probably a Mediterranean climate.”

  8. Patroni, you are my new god. Thank you for finding it and ending my pain!

  9. Way to go Patroni - I guess no one was looking in the heel of the Italian boot.

    My guess is that this is some kind of driver’s village that goes with the race track.
