NPR Sunday Puzzle (Could 22, 2022): A Pair of Islands Puzzle

Q: Take the identify of an island. Transfer its first letter two areas later within the alphabet (so A would turn out to be C, B would turn out to be D, and so forth.). Reverse the outcome and you will have the identify of one other island. What islands are these?

Regulars to this weblog have a bonus. Whereas I submitted this awhile in the past and do not keep in mind listening to again, I assume it received added to the queue of puzzles. Properly, I am unable to change yesterday, however we are able to change tomorrow! I say we “hold calm and keep on”.

The day earlier than the puzzle was Could 21. On that very same date in 1976, I used to be dwelling on Guam and went by way of Supertyphoon Pamela that went straight over the island. And in Could 23, 1960 a tsunami hit the Hawaiian Islands. The opposite trace was “hold calm” which was what it was like within the eye of the storm (a extremely eerie expertise if you happen to’ve by no means gone by way of such a storm) and likewise a callback to a different puzzle the place I discussed hold calm and love Maui.
