(visited by Penko Roussev, Hristina Stoimenova and Bogomil Roussev)

24-Aug-2003 -- I think this is the only confluence in Bulgaria, that can be reached by a vehicle. It is situated on the very village road of Selishte village. A next door is a malicious St Bernards’s dog. There are wooden grates for drying tobacco on both sides of the road. Over the fence there is ripen grape. The neighbors were enthusiastic about the idea, that right there, 42 latitude and 23 longitude were crossing. They could see the crowds of tourists coming to the place of confluence, as well as coming to try their grape-brandy. Well, we did try their grape-brandy, and we even managed to get home!
