I reckon the mediterranean coast will be the south coast?

This is my question. Is it the south coast of the mediterranean that this country borders. And west of the Nile river (hope I've got my geography right there)

Do we still keep participating in this one as well as P'ter's? I realise Hans has got it already but I haven't had time to look for this and now P'ter's lately and probably the same goes for others.

Just wondering if P'ter meant Etang de Berre, Etang de Galabert or Etang de Vaccares according to google maps?

My question is within 150kms of Marseille?

I was about to post the answer, as no-one had posted for some time, but if there are any who still want to have a go, I'll hold off for a day or so.
Jube, yes, it is within 150km of Marseille, and it is in a region of Etangs (two for the price of one today

Umm I think there was some discussion awhile back that it needed 2 pm's or the correct answer admitted in the thread but I could be entirely wrong there. I've been very slack at playing this game anyway

Okay narrows it down to within 50kms of Marseilles?

Nah, it needed to reach age two for the answer to be published, but it is not a set rule. The number of correct answers given by then wasn't important, provided there was at least one.

It's up to Lara because, as said, the "reach page 2" hasn't been a firmly set rule.
