Few month ago, I was on vacation visiting an old friend in his own country. We were sitting on his balcony enjoying the sea view from up the hill and listening to his old favorite music when he asked me:
"Do you like the view from here?"
"You have a beautiful sunset", I replied. "Can we spot the island of your neighbours from here?"
"Noo !! I don't think that's possible! There are more than 150km to the nearest land"
"I see.. and what is that music genre you're listening to?"
"Those are musics that never die in this country. They are traditional folk music. You should probably learn more about our culture since you have the occasion of visiting me now."
"Yeah.. You're right! There are a lot that I don't know yet. From where should I begin?"
"Well.. self education is sometimes better than formal education and since I heard you are great at solving puzzles, I want you to learn by yourself"
He then writes down on a piece of paper the following numbers:
What are the three missing numbers and why ???
- You may deduce the pattern easily, but it will only make sense when you find the country they're talking about. So try to find that first.
- You should surely explain how you obtained the solution. The title and the story are a hint.
The island is a country !
