Where in the World
Where in the world are you situated and in what direction are you facing if the following conditions are true?
If you move to the right, it's Saturday, July 1.
If you move to the left, it's Sunday, July 2.
If you move forward, it's summer.
If you move backward, it's winter.
You are at the intersection of the equator and the international dateline, facing north.

|Or: Immediately south of the equator and west of a time zone|
boundary, facing south, between 11PM and midnight, Sat. July 1, local time.

|Dewtell, not facing south. But at any place there is a time zone change at the equator. Remember July is summer in the northern hemisphere, so you have to be facing north to go forwards and have summer.|

|Oops - you're right about the summer/winter|
part, so you need to be facing north. But
in that case, you need to be at the International
Date Line for the left/right stuff to work.
So it looks like the original answer is unique after all.

|isnt the deadline misshapen (not a straight line)?|

|Yeah, the dateline probably isn't straight, but it still intersects with the equator somewhere.|
Great teaser. Too easy, though.
