As i only got half the puzzle right on a different posting, I've "legged" it back to this one to have another shot.

Had a flash of inspiration, will PM an answer.

Two people have got it right (Caz and Whitevanman)

so here's the solve:

Together Proclaims = United States

Without = 'San' (without in French = sans)
short Frances = 'Fran'
'Cisco' is a type of white fish (according to my dictionary anyway)

put it together you get San Francisco

Here goes then.

There may be arrows pointing around the body of water to this place, which is not as close as it sounds. To the east it sounds like you'll find a heap of bears but there's illness there, though it's more harmonious further South. :wink:

I could see arrows in the snow pointing to the water in Greenland on Google Earth, also the PolarBear clue, so its back to the old drawing board

You've got the right idea and I can see where you're coming from Adrian, but you're not going in the right direction. You're very cold!

No correct answers as yet but some very good ones that have taken a lot of thought. Keep it up and you'll soon get it.

Rumbly - you're not incontinent! :lol:
