Geocache Description:

(Français) Un peu du Brésil en Alsace!
(English) A little bit of Brazil in Alsace!

(Français) Le "Pain de sucre" est l'un des sites touristiques les plus connus de Rio de Janeiro, au Brésil. Pourtant ce sommet, mondialement connu, a son équivalent en Alsace. Le site se trouve à moins de 3km du waypoint (aléatoire) GCTM7R.

Une fois le "point principal" identifié, il faut s'y rendre et lire une date, 19XX. Calculer ab,cde=(XX+4)*2,153 et fg,hij=XX*2,536. La cache se trouve alors aux coordonnées N48°ab.cde' E007°fg.hij'. La somme des chiffres a-j est de 35.

Svp veiller à ce que la cache soit de nouveau bien camouflée après votre visite.

(English) Sugarloaf Mountain is one of the most famous tourist attractions of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Surprisingly, there's an equivalent hill in Alsace. The cache site is within 3km of the waypoint GCT7MR, which is otherwise chosen arbitrarily.

Once you have identified the "main attraction", go there and find a date 19XX. Calculate ab.cde=(XX+4)*2.153 and fg.hij=XX*2.536. The cache is at N48°ab.cde' E007°fg.hij'. The sum of the 10 digits a through j is 35.

Please put the cache back exactly as you found it - without its camouflage it is too easy to spot.
