05-Feb-2007 -- This Confluence is near the Kufra-Tāzirbū junction of our project "Kufra-Tāzirbū conveyance pipeline system". The point is just about 15 km from the Kufra-Tāzirbū road.

On the day we've been there it was very windy, as you can see in the GPS photo, with sand flying all around. It was funny, though a hard day to arrive there.
