Geocache Description:


A phoenix is a mythical bird that is a fire spirit with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends). It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. In some stories, the new phoenix embalms the ashes of its old self in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis (literally "sun-city" in Greek). It is said that the bird's cry is that of a beautiful song. In very few stories they are able to change into people. As phoenixes tend to ignite spontaneously, you should never keep them indoors, especially places that contain paper or other flamable things. You should never bring your phoenix into a library, as it might end in library being burned down. In this case the phoenix has been arrested and put behind steel door, still not everything was saved from fire. N 56°E(G+C)-B.ABCEG+G(G+C)-2A+8

The place is public. Please be sure to check that no one is watching you, when you are trying to release phoenix from its prison.
