Today's hash is within walking distance from my house, it would be crazy not to go there!

Expedition[edit]

So, I haven't done this in a long time, and I can see that activity on the wiki is declining, but when I saw today's hash so close to home I just had to do it!

After finishing my dentist's appointment, I started walking. The day was almost sunny and almost warm, more like spring than it usually is in Stockholm this time of year.

The spring feeling was accentuated by the fact that they had sweeped the pavement (from the gravel that is supposed to keep us from slipping on the ice). This is something that normally is done far later in spring, when people start using bikes and roller skates again.

After a while I started feeling the smell of chocolate in the air. It got more and more intense as I closed in on the hash point, and I knew exactly why. You don't live in Upplands Väsby without knowing about the Marabou chocolate factory, and it's situated right across the road from the hash.

The hash was easy to reach, on the lawn next to the student's houses, and I just took a screendump before hurrying to the train, back to work.
