    Very good - I thought that was obscure. Hmm, perhaps it is obscure and I am not taking into account that you are simply amazingly clever. Yes, I think that's probably right :-)

    Now geocoded as per requirements. Ten out of ten for knowing that in the UK what you call traffic circles are what we call roundabouts, but I'm afraid you missed a subtler lingusitic issue and have perhaps confused yourself. The turning-around-thing is also called a roundabout in the UK. Properly I think one should call it a carousel, but the small turning-around-thing one finds in small children's playgrounds is called a roundabout and I guess we hang on to that term as we get older. For an extra ten points, what is the other alternative in British English to 'carousel' for this type of roundabout? No cheating on Wikipedia!
