Confluence nr. 2
On Tuesday, 2 January 2007, early in the morning (it was 8:45) after deflating tyres in order to better "float" over the sand, we reached and visited the intersection between meridian 28° and parallel 25°. This site is a few steps away from the Egyptian borderline, in a particular place: a flat sand expanse that we reached after driving between 2 dune walls, in a small sand valley.

Continued at 25N 25E.
