FelixTheCat (talk)


I was on a trip in the Middle East, of course looking at the geohashes every day. Unfortunately, most were either in the sea, in the middle of the desert, or in restricted areas. But on the second-to-last day of my trip this one popped up on what appeared to be, on Google Maps, a vacant lot in a new business park. Of course you never know if something has been built there in the meantime, but all the more reason to go there and find out. As it turned out, it was still an empty wasteland and the spot was easy to reach (though somehow I couldn't get a zero reading on my GPS). There were a few people walking around a building across the street but they didn't seem to mind me wandering around.
