  1. Breaking up is hard to do.

  2. Has this image been updated in google earth? I think I’m looking in the right place, maybe I’m just not looking hard enough!

  3. No change. Alles ist in Ordnung.

  4. Ok,found some similar places south east of Alexandria, Egypt, but no luck yet.

  5. This country made a lot of noise in recent news.

  6. I think I know where this is but can’t find it (if that makes sense). Maybe I’m just running scared (looks at Alan for clue)………..

  7. The gross clue will also help, geographically.

  8. 31°16′11.29″N
    73°24′39.64″O
    ‘Chak 354 GB Rodi’, Pakistan

    Every town in this area looks the same, it’s insane

  9. Sorry that would be
    31°16′11.29″N
    73°24′39.64″E
    but Google Earth sends me to a nearby road 5km to the east of the location, weird

  10. And what is significant about that area?

    Remember, there is a purpose to the sequence of puzzles.

  11. Can’t find anything on the place let alone anything relevant. Searching for Rodi Pakistan on google but nothing yet.

    Nice find by the way. Well done.

  12. My cryptic question is parried by a cryptic response. Touché. I’m now thinking that I’m probably wrong on this one now…….

  13. Delete that last comment!

    Nice find xiempie.

  14. Hmm, I can’t find anything relevant either about the area. Maybe I should look for the larger area..

  15. And thanks Kenwyn and John :)

  16. Upon further review, I’ve realized that in my meanderings to find an interesting puzzle, I wandered farther from the ’source’ than I intended. Look a bit to the north-east for the themed reason for this puzzle.

  17. Does it have something to do with the Badshahi Mosque in Lahore? Or is that too far away?

  18. It was supposed to be at or near:
    31° 27′ 0″ N, 73° 42′ 0″ E
    Nankana Sahib, birthplace of Guru Nanak, founder of Sikhism.

    Somehow I screwed up when looking for images on GoogleEarth and ended up too far away. Sorry about that.

  19. I searched there a while back but I don’t think it was for this puzzle, can’t remember why now though. doh!
