BosGuy brain teaser

brain teaser, rodinEach Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain.

If you are stumped, feel free to get help – share it with a friend or colleague to see if you can figure it out together.

I’ll confirm answers later in the day so don’t worry if you don’t see your comment posted right away. I want to give everyone a chance.

This week’s riddle:

What has a forest but no trees.
cities but no people and
rivers but no water?

Like riddles? Check out past week’s brain teasers.
