The Foxer

Warm-up Foxer (Where am I?)

I'm 30km due north of a whaling station. I can see an orangutan and a chimp. I'm 5km from an international border. The name of this road includes the local word for 'bridge'. I'm in a country that has a lyricless national anthem. The Romans processed fish at a site 1km from here. I'm at the same latitude as the capital of a Middle Eastern proto-state. The speed limit on this section of road is 30kph. There's a strong smell of oil and oil byproducts in this vicinity.

The 127-cell honeycomb below is a fancy form of wordsearch in which every cell is used, and words can curl and zigzag but never overlap. Each hive foxer has a unique theme (some past themes: Harry Potter, gold, postage stamps) Identifying this theme is a vital part of the defoxing process.
