Re(1): Listener 4351: Failed Attempt by Wiglaf IP: 22.214.171.124 Posted on July 12, 2015 at 06:25:48 PM by John Nicholson
For once an easy puzzle arrived when I most wanted one, so for that I was grateful. Like Robert, I liked the palindrome and I hadn't come across it before. I enjoyed solving the puzzle, however, I do think that a grid, even in an easy puzzle, needs more going on than six thematic entries and four cells to highlight.
I flew into Pisa a couple of years ago for the first time and found myself looking out of the window for the tower with the same sort of excitement that I felt almost fifty years ago sailing into Cape Town and Sydney Harbour. These landmarks, along with a few others, seemed to represent foreign shores when I was a child, and clearly still do.
