That puzzle was an awesome experience, thank you Jonah !
I honestly can't begin to comprehend how such a puzzle can be created, it is very impressive.

The feelings when I opened the pdf, saw the matchmaker grid and thought "uh, where is the puzzle ?", then read the first line of the second page... big emotional whiplash :D
(I don't know if some people expected the twist beforehand, but I was not one of them !)

The entry point was not trivial (constraint between Country, and ? clue limited to 6) but I suppose I had a good intuition on that day !
After that the puzzle solved quite smoothly.
I had a bit of a difficult moment in the C zone, luckily never destroying my progress in other parts ; and had to use trial and error to join several loop parts around the junction of ABDE regions in the end (I guess I started to be tired and didn't notice something logical with the masyu rule ?).

I must say, after all that I was quite surprised to see it had only taken me 90 minutes, it felt like a longer journey !

I got another solution, could anyone check it, please? It's only different in the middle sector, starting in row 8 (key C): 213312; row 9: 11211222; row 10: 112341 and the ice-barn-clues in row 8 and 10 are visited twice. Thx

The ice barn clue in row 10 could not be visited twice, as the horizontal crossing would violate the Liar restriction, as it would be a room entry of length 1.

Oh yeah, I got exactly the same mistake... Noticing that this particular ice barn crossing is forbidden by liar rule was pretty tricky to me, that was the mistake I was searching 20 minutes for and it would definitely simplify the process of solving had I noticed it earlier.
