23-Dec-2008 -- On my way to Cameroon at Christmas 2008, I passed by the small village `Ain Diss. It's a agri- and forest-cultured area in the Wilaya of Oum el Bouaghi.

It's a bit difficult to find the point exactly, because there are deep erosion valleys with less satellit contact.

Be careful in this "outback" of north Algeria, because the people of this rural area are not prepaired of "innocents" running with "mobiles" senseless in the landscape.

But after two hours' discussion with the chief of the security police in the headquarter of Oum el Bouaghi, he decided - I'm not a terrorist, I'm a tourist.
