3 guesses to Vegas or Egypt?

  • Paul

    The sun is straight above you at the equator, so no gambling at the Bellagio for you, even though the anal probe you would experience on the UFO could cause you to feel like you’ve spent some time in Vegas.

  • I was thinking the word sand was the giveaway and that the Luxor Sphinx is an entrance.

  • Here’s the answer:

    You are in Egypt. On the globe, US is North from the Tropic of Cancer line. Tropic of Cancer is the north most line where sun could be straight overhead. So, sun can’t be straight above you in Vegas. Tropic of Cancer crosses Egypt. So sun could be straight above you during a certain part of the year in Egypt.

    Paul, you are today’s winner!!!!
