The hash is located in Hamburg city centre at a pavement between the "Lehmweg" and a loading canal.

In the morning, it seemed to be a very rainy sunday that made me consider staying in bed all day. But then I used my favourite sattelite image service which showed me - more accuryately than any weather forecast possibly ever could - the clouds wander off in the afternoon. At this point a fellow student rung me up and wanted to join in geohashing.
We got on the suburban train, changed trains at the "Landungsbrücken" and found the hash without problems. Today my efforts in making geohashing more popular resulted in a poster. After various employees of public order tried to charge me for anything whilst geohashing, I asked google whether I am allowed to pin the poster to the tree at the hash. THIS IS GERMANY - of course, I am not. In case I get caught, the removal of the poster will cost me 100,-€. Only a "Bewilligter Antrag auf Erlaubnis einer Plakatierungsmaßnahme für nichtkommerzielle Organisationen" (I'd be glad if anyone could translate this in proper incomprehensible official's language) would allow me to attatch the poster to private property. Luckily there was an empty advertising space for the upcoming election campaign nearby. It is not public property, I assume, so I decided to place my poster there.
After succeeding in geohashing, we crossed the street and entered a restaurant nearby.
