03-Sep-2004 -- We started the journey from location Mijek, a UN Teamsite located roughly at 23°30'N 12°45'W, south towards a location called Agwanit (both in the Western Sahara). I travelled with 4 other colleagues. We used 2 Nissan Patrol vehicles. There are no border markings to indicate demarcation between Mauritania and Western Sahara. Due to the presence of mines and unexploded ordnances (UXOs), we always stayed on existing tracks.
However, the confluence location is about 5 km to the east of the track. We 'locked' the location on our GPS (Garmin 128) and travelled carefully towards the spot on disused tracks. We had to circumvent two rocky mountains and sandy patches to get there. The terrain is very flat and sandy. When we arrived at the spot, I had to drive the vehicle around to 'fine-tune' to the exact spot. The time as per the GPS was about 09:05 hrs. (The time stamps on the photos are Malaysian time, i.e. GMT+8 hrs).
