Os gigantes de D. Quixote — Em comemoração dos 400 anos do valeroso cavaleiro Don Quijote de la Mancha

Os aerogeradores do Sabugal

Os últimos quatro algarismos das coordenadas da cache estão escritos em inglês por extenso e codificados. Assim, por exemplo, a longitude E 651234, passa a E 65onetwothreefour, que depois é codificado. O código usado é um simples código de substituição. Para te ajudar a decifrá-lo, incluo abaixo, codificado com o mesmo código, um excerto do famoso episódio dos moinhos do "Dom Quixote" de Cervantes, cuja versão não codificada (ou melhor, codificada em castelhano) podes encontrar aqui. Atenção, o excerto que incluo em baixo não aparece no início deste documento. Além disso, apaguei do original referências às notas de rodapé, acentos e sinais de pontuação, e passei tudo a minúsculas. Seja como fôr, mesmo sem usar o original deve ser fácil descodificar o excerto. Ao fim ao cabo, as expressões "Don Quijote" e "Sancho" devem aparecer com alguma frequência...
A cache é uma caixa cilíndrica para bolas de ténis, com 10cm de diâmetro e 30cm de altura.

The Giants of D. Quijote — In celebration of the 400 years of the worthy knight Don Quijote de la Mancha

The wind generators of Sabugal

The giants themselves The last four digits digits of the cache coordinates are spelled in english and encoded. For instance, the longitude E 651234, is written as E 65onetwothreefour, which is then encoded. The code I used is a simple substitution code. To help you decipher the coordinates, I include below, encoded using the same code, a fragment of the famous episode of the windmills from Cervantes' "Don Quijote", the plain text version of which you can find here (in spanish). Please note that the fragment below is not at the beginning of that document. Besides, I removed from the unencrypted version footnote pointers, accents and punctuation marks, and set it all in lowercase. Anyway, you can get it even without the unencrypted version. After all, it should be expected that "Don Quijote" and "Sancho" appear frequently...
The cache is a cylindrical plastic box for tenis balls, around 10cm in diameter and 30cm high.
