Das "Rätsel" schon länger gelöst (wenn auch zum Zeitpunkt der Suche schon wieder vergessen [:I]).
Im "Teamwork" glücklicherweise kein Problem.

Hundstrümmerl aufgepasst: mich habt ihr nicht erwischt, dafür gabs massenhaft Kellerasseln die sich über den cache hergemacht hatten...

Am Montag wegen Muggles aufgeben mussen, nächtens nach einem Regenschauer wars kein Problem. Bei den Fragen haben sich nur die zwei Flüsse etwas länger gewehrt. Danke für den Cache.

Hallo Zusammen!

Nachdem wir beim ersten Versuch eine Berechnung nicht durchgeführt haben, haben wir den Cache nach Behebung unseres Fehlers leicht gefunden.

Wir haben den Cache heute relativ rasch gefunden. Jaja, wer sich verrechnet muß halt extra Runden durch das Zielgebiet drehen. Uns stellt sich nur die Frage was das Zielgebiet mit Vietnam zu tun hat. Wir haben da unsere Vermutungen, aber wer weiß schon Genaueres?

the questions were solved fast, because they weren't that difficult. it is very helpful, that the first letter of the answers were given, so no wrong answer is possible. that was important, because, as cezanne already mentioned already, question two isn't formulated 100 % correctly, but everybody should solve it anyway.

many thanks to j-blue for hiding this cache. i hope it will survive longer and will be less maintenance-intensive than the original lunchbreak.

When I saw this cache, it immediately attracted my attention due to the word Vietnam in the title. I had professional contacts with Vietnamese colleagues some years ago. Moreover, I am fascinated by Asian culture and history although I find it often quite hard to understand the different types of mentality. Vietnam is a very special country, unfortunately I have not been there myself and have only talked to native Vietnamese people and to European visitors to Vietnam. The questions of the cache also reminded me of the interview the famous number theorist Neal Koblitz conducted with the famous Vietnamese mathematician Hoang Tuy (see The Mathematical Intelligencer, Vol 12, No 3, 1990, 16-34). The title of the interview is 'Recollection of mathematics in a country under siege' and the article is touching also for non-mathematicians and also for people who have never met the extraodinary person Hoang Tuy.

Some of the questions to be answered to obtain the coordinates of the cache were trivial for me as I knew the answers right away, for the remaining ones, the answers were obtained very quickly within seconds. (In my opinion, the second question about Hanoi is wrongly formulated, but in any case, it is clear what answer is meant.)

The coordinates I came up with, looked very reasonable to me - so I decided to have a look at the location which is well known to me on my way to a supermarket because I wanted to buy some food. I did not have my GPSr with me and there were many people around, but due to my knowledge of the area, I was able to find, retrieve and rehide the cache without problems. In general, the early morning (recommended as daylight is helpful and less suspicious than using a torch) and the late evening might be the best times to look for the cache.

I am neither enthusiastic about the hideout of the cache nor about the vicinity of the place. I liked, however, the homework part of the cache and the idea to dedicate a cache to Vietnam and to the Vietnamese people. Thank you.
