There is another solution near British Columbia, Canada. (Do we
know anybody there?) The latitude should be the same as Edinburg,
but I don't know a quick way to get the longitude. The "about"
makes this riddle apply to just about any place in western North
America including New Mexico and California. Oh, yeah, and New
Zealand and Australia.
Follow the great circle going NW from Edinburgh. Shortly, you are
going WNW. After you pass Greenland, you are going west. At some
point near BC you are going SW. You cross the equator going SSW.
Near the Tasman Basin (by Australia and New Zealand) you are going
SW again. In the southern Indian Ocean you are going west and then
NW. You cross the equator near western Africa going NNW. When you
get back to Edinburg, you are going NW again. You may stop. The
solutions are those that have the direction SW, since the opposite
direction is NE.
Now, my other question?
