Where's Waldo?

January 7th, 2019, 11:37 pm

Back in the day, there was a game book where you had to find the character 'Waldo' in a rather complicated drawing. This is a similar puzzle.

Here is a picture of Shanghai.
You can zoom in to almost unbelievable detail (don't worry, the link loads quickly, although the full image is 195 Gigapixels).
So, I zoomed in and found this, let's call him Waldo.

Can you find him?

That would be very easy, because I see cats everywhere :-)
BTW, it's funny that there are so many pairs of identical people (after merging the multiple photos they must have taken).

Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..

Yes, I noticed some dups, too.  OK, find this -- it must be down there somewhere (picture from elsewhere):
