Geocache Description:

The first cache on Madeira! Along a (very easy) levada walk.

When I was on vacation on Madeira I placed this cache. It was the first cache on that Island. It is located quite close to the center of Funchal near a really easy levada walk. (A levada is a watering channel made of concrete. This one is basically like a pavement). You need to get on the levada to have any chance to find it. The actual cache is a white ice-cream box with some Swedish coins. I thought that when people come to Madeira on vacation they can exchange a coin from their own country for a Swedish one.

***Portugese*** (Thanks GreenShades for the translation.)
Quando eu estava em férias na Madeira coloquei esta cache. É a primeira cache nesta Ilha. Está situada muito perto do centro do Funchal perto de uma caminhada bastante fácil numa levada. (uma levada é um pequeno canal para irrigação feito de cimento. Esta é basicamente como um pavimento). É preciso entrar na levada para poder encontrá-la. A Cache é uma caixa branca de gelado com algumas moedas suecas. Eu pensei que quando as pessoas vêm à Madeira em férias podem trocar uma moeda do seu próprio país por uma moeda Sueca.
