# Who got some sun on the voyage?

We meek internationalists go on a little afternoon voyage

Who got some sun on the voyage?

Hint #1:

My question history (previous puzzles) may prove useful.

Hint #2:

interNATionalists

Hint #3:

You might get some help from a girl with a Goodly Heart

Hint #4:

You also might get help from a hot lady ogre

• Interestingly, the anagram Toto, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore is contained within this Apr 23, 2019 at 16:05
• That is interesting - what else is contained in it? :) Apr 24, 2019 at 23:22

Elliot

First clue, thanks to Smock

As Smock pointed out in the comments - "the anagram Toto, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore is contained within" the puzzle. The rest of the letters in the puzzle can be rearranged to spell "Elliot tan".

Hint 2

NAT is an anagram of tan

Hints 3 and 4

Both anagrams of Dorothy Gale - the main character from The Wizard of Oz

• That is the answer! Good job. Apr 25, 2019 at 16:21
• Lol, i thought that was just an amusing (to me) coincidence Apr 29, 2019 at 8:35

It was ...

a bunch of Amazon fulfillment center workers on a day cruise.

That seems unlikely.

Well, yes. But possible.
Toward the end of 2018, Amazon started hiring over 1,000 workers for its new warehouse and fulfillment center in the newly opened Carrie Meek International Business Park in Opa-Locka, Florida—located mere minutes1 from Miami Beach, from which a number of businesses run chartered day cruises.

The folks working at the "Amazon Mega Warehouse" — which, by the way, you can take a tour of (look for "Opa Locka, FL (MIA1)" on the list) — are, of course, also working in the Carrie Meek International Business Park, making them Meek Internationalists. Put them on a day cruise, et voilà.

1 ok, maybe 40 to 50 minutes. Still, reasonable.

• This is not the answer, though I like the approach. This puzzle is more word-play and less research based. Interesting find, though! Apr 22, 2019 at 16:13

My version (well, it's quite unrealistic):

Kim Jong-un

Explanation:

"Meek internationalists" may be a delegation from DPR Korea (North Korea) visiting Republic of Korea (South Korea) (the voyage can be little due to the small distance between the bordering countries). The leader of the North Korean delegation (Kim Jong-un of course) gets a Samsung (pronounced much like some sun) cellphone as a gift from the South Korean side.

• Not correct, but good attempt. Much more word-play at play here. Apr 22, 2019 at 16:12

Based on hints 3 and 4:

There's something anagram related going on. That also ties in with hint #1, as previous @MetaZen puzzles involved anagrams.

From hint 2:

InterNATionalists seems to be pointing out that they got a TAN, as per the question.

So to find out who got some sun, presumably:

We find a suitable anagram that fits the rest of it, possibly with some wordplay involved first .... which I haven't quite managed yet

• This is the right way forward. Pretty big spoiler in the comments above! Still a little bit of work to get the final answer. Apr 24, 2019 at 17:08
