Geocache Description:

En mysteriecache i hjärtat av Göteborg
A mystery cache in the hart of Gothenburg

Göteborg anlades för att underlätta utrikeshandeln. Stadens hjärta var naturligtvis Stora Hamnen. Numera heter den Stora Hamnkanalen och här lastar och lossar inga båtar längre, men Ostindiska Kompaniets magasin ligger här och är numera stadens museum. Göteborg har alltid varit en invandrarstad och cachen har anknytning till en invandrargemenskap integrerad i ett svenskt sammanhang.

Koordinaterna ovan visar dig inte direkt till cachen men till en plats som har attributet gemensamt med platsen där cachen ligger. Vill du ha fler ledtrådar kan du tänka på stadens grundares dotter. Området som ledtrådarna pekar på är ungefär ett halvt kvarter stort, men det finns inte många gömställen för en 0,4 l plastburk där så du borde kunna hitta den.

Vill du ha koordinater så får du leta reda på en 6 cm x 9 cm inplastad bild som är gömd på platsen. Den visar dig en utgångspunkt som du kan se där du står. Om du beger dig till den plats som pekas ut på bilden, så befinner du dig 0.016' norr och 0.142' ost om cachen. Den finns på en plats där du vanligen kan logga i lugn och ro, men vissa tider kan det vara mycket folk där.

Gothenburg was founded to ease the foreign trade. The hart of the city was of course Stora Hamnen (The Great Harbour) Nowadays it's called Stora Hamnkanalen and no boats load or unload there any more, but the warehouse of the Swedish East India Company still stands here serving as the city museum. There has always been immigrants in Gothenburg and the cache has a connection to an immigrant community integrated into a Swedish context.

The coordinates don't lead you directly to the cache but to a place that has its attribute in common with the cache location. If you want more clues, you may think of the daughter of the founder of the city. The clues lead you to an area that is about half a block, but there aren't many hiding places for a 0.4 l plastic box there, so you should be able to find it.

If you want coordinates you have to find a 6 cm x 9 cm laminated picture hidden at the place. It will direct to a place you can see from where you stand. If you go to the location pointed out in the picture, you will find yourself at 0.016' north and 0.142' east of the cache. It's at place where you usually can log in peace and quiet, but sometimes it may be busy.
