- 藏点名：Sanshan Guild Hall 三山会馆
This one was a funny experience. We arrived there around 4:30pm, and the museum was closed but the premices were still open. So we could find the statue and following the instructions, we found the cache quite easily.
However, we had just written our name in the logbook and had not yet put the cache back in place when a guard showed up and asked us to leave. There was no way to put the cache back in place as he was watching us closely and waiting for us to leave. So we motioned towards the exit. Now the cache was in my bag and I was wondering how the hell I could put it back in place, when I had an idea. There were some toilets close to the exit, and I pretended to go to the toilets, as I had noticed that the toilets had a back door. While the guard was waiting at the front door, I came out of the toilets via the back door, went around the building back to the cache location, put the cache back in place without being seen by the guard, came back to the toilets via the back door, and finally exited from the toilets via the front door in front of the guard. He then closed the main entrance gate behind us.
Anyway, thank you for the cache, and for the fun !

11 days after the FTF…
I did not read the log before searching here. So I was a little surprised, after a very short and easy search (at 7pm there are not that many people around), to find the logbook totally blank…
But let me start the tale a little earlier. I search caches in Shanghai when I come here for work, that is once or twice a year.. . Arrived yesterday, and after a dense day of work at university, I was curious to have a look at some of the newly created caches in the town center.. . But I left work late, so had not that much time available.
Chapter one: “View the Birds and Flowers and Sit Down in UBPA: -> DNF (:-(
Optimizing the number of metro changes, I started at the Birds and Flowers new multi. As others reported, finding the 2 waypoint answers was easy, but then I was troubled, if you look at the description on one side, at the WP legend on the other side, you get 2 different formulas for the final coordinates.
I choose the version that did not lead inside a building, and searched for awhile in something I could qualify an “enclosed structure” but did not find anything.
So I gave up and I will come back if i can manage to get more information .
Then I continued my way through this original area… the first time I came in Shanghai was at the time of the Expo, nearly 8 years ago, and I still can recognise around here some of the pavilions from that time ! Strange…
Chapter 2: “Sit down and view the Nanpu” -> STF (:-)
10 minutes later I came to the Huangpu riverside. Finding the place, then the tube, was easy, this place is reasonably hidden from the main flow of muggles.
But then came this blank logbook. Am I FTF after all that time ? Impossible…
At that time I took the time to go back to my phone, and read the previous log. Ok I see, this guy ran to get the FTF , and forgot his pen ! Funny
So I got my pen, and… no way, it definitely refused to write anything… then the sense of humour increased… I went to the main path along the river, asked some people, even one guard.. . But either they did not understood me, the others had no pen.
So the result is, again:
A blank logbook,
And a photolog!
And a FP!
This cache seems to be cursed somehow…. may the next one have a pen !!!
Thanks ianian for this !
