Today's location dropped very conveniently in the middle of Turku's largest graveyard.
Today's hash point was very conveniently close to my home and within a walking distance. It was quite cold, -6 degC but it wasn't at all windy. I noticed that some interesting achievements could be obtained today so I didn't hesitate but took my flashlight and went to the cemetery.
All the lights at the cemetery are turned off at 21, so the whole place was dark. Only light came from some candles at graves, and my flashlight which I occasionally had to use. It was very nice and somewhat spooky to walk around the graveyard at night. I decided to go after Tron achievement and I took a little detour just in case. Close to the zero point, I had to do additional lap in order to avoid stepping on someone's grave. Hash point was easily reached and I celebrated by making a small snowman at the location and tried to take some pictures. Phone's camera wasn't very good in the darkness.
I took another route towards home. I walked through the oldest part of the graveyard. There are the most scary monuments and there are a lot of ghosts too. I didn't meet anyone, though. maybe it was too cold for the ghosts, dunno...
There were some paths missin at the OpenStreetMap so I draw them at the same time
Suurnesu told me earlier today that he's going to visit here so I decided too. Late on the evening I asked kukkamaaria to join me and we went there by bikes. It was just few kilometers to the graveyard so the geohash wasn't far away from my home. We left our bikes to one of the gates of graveyard and walked about 200-300 meters to the location. Hash fell directly on to path which was a good thing, wouldn't surely wanted to walk to the graves to find the actual coordinates. Took a while before I could get exact coordinates to display but soon they appeared. After those I took several photos of myself, tried to make out something scary... :) Maybe I succeeded, maybe not. Had to quit photographing when my fingers started to freeze. Then we left back to our bikes with kukkamaaria and headed back home. Beautiful location for a geohash, graveyard was a nice and calm place to walk now on winter time.
