05-Jul-2015 -- To reach the confluence point itself was actually fairly easy, even if no 'roads' in this area are mapped. We were using our satellite images and, of course, the GPS to navigate. We could drive as close as about 800 m from the confluence point, which was lying in the field.

The whole area is heavily cultivated, with just a few shrubs and trees. The local people (most of them with AK47s WTF! I lost mine in our car!) on the confluence point tried to see what we were doing and were a bit concerned about what we were doing, but with a poker face on we continued with our mission.
