In Frankfurt's new "Europaviertel" on a construction site.



Get off the motorway, go hashing, get back onto the motorway. :)


The satellite view showed some wasteland, but I was rather sceptic, since that area of Frankfurt is being heavily developed with lots of new business and resident buildings. When I neared the site, I parked in front of one construction site, just to try the one opposite it for the coordinates. It appeared the hash would be on wasteland yet undeveloped behind some construction office containers, or in the park next to it. Since there was some outdoor meeting of some engineers (?), I tried the park first and got within 9m of the coordinates, but they were clearly on the (future) construction site.

When I came back, I politely asked the people gathering between the two container structures if they would allow me to wander "10m in that direction". While they were wondering what the heck I intended, they were working and there wasn't time for discussion or explanation, and they didn't really care and allowed me in. Thus, the hash dance was completed easily (no digging, etc. done yet) and I thanked them and continued my travel home.
