Geocache Description:

(For a Spanish version see below)
This cache is mainly designed for new kids in town or tourists who like to combine sightseeing with geocaching. It is a mystery that leads you through Lima to some of the most important points of interests (POI), at least to my impression.

And here is the mystery:
I uploaded 10 photos of POIs in Lima to the gallery and gave them a number. During your quick tour through Lima you have to identify the objects on the photos correctly. Finally, put the POI number you have identified into the following equation:

ABC = 1*Pachacamac + 2*Bizantino + 3*Armas +4*Agua Dulce +5*Osambela + 6*San Fransisco + 7*Catedral + 8*Arzobispal +9*Congreso + 10*Miraflores

XYZ = 10*Pachacamac + 9*Bizantino + 8*Armas +7*Agua Dulce +6*Osambela + 5*San Fransisco + 4*Catedral + 3*Arzobispal +2*Congreso + 1*Miraflores

Then calculate the place where the cache is hidden from the following equation:
S12 07.(256+ABC) W77 01.(034+XYZ)

Attention! The access to the final is not possible before 10am and after 5pm. The cachebox is an integral part of the final object. When you look for the cache box please take care of the guardmen (vigilantes). They are dressed in dark blue but have no special uniform. Take care when taking photos, officially it is not allowed. Go to the park side of the object and concentrate on the second wheel of the trailer from the back. Best is when you first take a seet on the sitting bench before the object to wait for a good moment. In a quiet moment lift the cover and you will find a black filmcanister inside. On the cover you will find the name "Symington". Your hands may get dirty with black grease but you can use the bathroom (banos, in a small house) to clean them with soap afterwards. Please hide the logbook well after logging. There are many muggles around here, particularly very interested children, watch out! In case the logbook gets stolen just put a regular paper with your name and date into the iron box. Please bring some paper and a pen in case of need. Don't put geocoins and travelbugs in the box it may be too dangerous, use (visit link) instead!

Have fun caching!

A note to all the tourist cachers: What about designing a similar cache for your home town? Just copy the mystery and exchange the pics (I won't sue you for the copyright ). And don't forget to copy this note. Finally name it "Top 10 POI -your town name-" and everybody can easily search for this type of sightseeing cache.

Spanish version

Este cache está pensado principalmente para gente que acabe de llegar a Lima o turistas que quieran combinar la visita turística con el geocaching. Es un Mistery cache que te llevará a través de Lima mostrándote, a mi entender, los puntos de interés (PDI) más importantes de la ciudad.

Y este es el misterio:

En la galería se encuentran 10 fotos de PDIs en Lima, y les he asignado a cada una un número. Durante tu breve recorrido por Lima visitando los puntos anteriores, tendrás que identificar cada lugar con su foto. Por último, pon el número de cada punto de interés en su lugar correspondiente en la siguiente ecuación:

ABC = 1*Pachacamac + 2*Bizantino + 3*Armas +4*Agua Dulce +5*Osambela + 6*San Fransisco + 7*Catedral + 8*Arzobispal +9*Congreso + 10*Miraflores

XYZ = 10*Pachacamac + 9*Bizantino + 8*Armas +7*Agua Dulce +6*Osambela + 5*San Fransisco + 4*Catedral + 3*Arzobispal +2*Congreso + 1*Miraflores

Resolviendo la siguiente ecuación obtendrás el punto donde está el cache:
S12 07.(256+ABC) W77 01.(034+XYZ)

El contenedor del cache está escondido por debajo del remolque (¡pista!). Por favor, esconde bien el cache después de firmar para que no pueda verse. Hay muchísimos muggles y vigilantes por la zona.¡Estate pendiente!

¡Feliz caching!

Nota para los geocachers turistas: ¿qué os parecería poner un cache parecido en vuestra ciudad de origen? Basta con copiar el mystery cache que os propongo pero cambiando las fotos (no os reclamaré el copyright ) ¡Y no olvides copiar esta nota! Luego podéis llamarlo: “TOP 10 POI – nombre de la ciudad-“ y todo el mundo podrá buscar fácilmente caches de esta clase de visita turística por la ciudad.
