I had certainly always known rivers to meander, but I never knew it was an actual noun! That's pretty cool, and very apt.

The word "meander" actually comes to English from Greek, specifically from a meandering river named Meander in what is now Turkey.

I've never heard of mews before. I though that the answer is another word for a dead-end street. Learned something new again. :)

My friend Vinny used to live on a street called ____ Mews before. Didn't occur to me, and I still don't know what makes a mews a mews. A high concentration of stray cats?

a mews was a stable house with a big door below for a carriage and a house above, now they are just houses with those features.

Originally a 'Mews' was a street of stables behind the 'posher' houses where the horses belonging to the folks and the carriages etc. were housed. With the loss of horses and carriages the mews became empty and have been tarted up and sold as 'yuppie homes'.

A mew was where they kept hawks to mo(u)lt. Later that term was also used for the place to keep horses confined (and also in a figurative way in the meaning of being locked away). Later those stables were altered so they could be used as houses, though the name lingered.

molting used to be called to mewe (mue). If you like to read some middle english, 15th century quotes I enjoyed reading it personally. 99% understandable imo, interesting to see how words have changed.

I'm still kind of surprised that "meander" was actually the correct answer. Total guess on my part.

Right?!! Just goofing, I started to write "meandering..." I don't even know what I was going to type next. Nearly fell out of my chair when it accepted it.

I've heard of Mews before many times, but I'm still not quite sure what it means. I am very curious about it though.

They're houses above stables behind large town houses in big cities like London. They're just normal houses now and stables have been converted into a ground floor.

Probably. I visited Madrid this December and those buildings, while very distinctive, are not familiar to me. Can anyone suggest a better picture from Wikipedia?

Maybe this one? https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Madrid_13.JPG

There are a lot of pictures from Madrid here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Madrid

Since I haven't been there yet it's hard for me to tell which is something typical and not a random street / building. I apologize if you've already seen them.
