  1. Despite all the space, I heard they were packed in tightly.

  2. …in a small tin.

  3. Adriaan (not Adrian) has already solved this one, so I know the idiom isn’t lost in translation.

  4. These hints may look like red herrings to you. Well they’re not, but there is something fishy about it.


  5. Here again, I get the clues, but can’t find the place. Impatience, I guess.

  6. Think Serie A.


  7. These clues are getting more tangled than spaghetti.

  8. Hi Guys, I’m back.

    This one is an office of some sort. It is just north of Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy.

  9. Great to hear from you again, Deepb1ue!

    This is quite literally the first image I ever chose to save off of GoogleEarth. I came across it while searching for GE #9 — way, way back, many centuries ago.

    I don’t know why I was taken with this image. Adriaan thought it had to do with the way you can make my initials (AF) out of the layout. I hadn’t noticed til he pointed it out.

    Anyway, now it’s found. Only a few more left. They will be solved, one way or another, by the end of the weekend.

  10. I spent a lot of time looking at Cagliari, but came up short (obviously).


  11. I think this may be a campus of the University of Cagliari. It certainly has the right characteristics, and some searching shows that it probably true. If I could read Italian, I could probably prove it.


  12. You’re right, it’s the “Complesso Universitario di Monserrato”.
