24-Sep-2012 -- On a brief stop over in Srinagar on our way from Bangkok to Leh in Ladakh I noted on the hotel's internet station that there was a confluence point not too far away. The owner of Blooming Dale Hotel, Mr. Firdous, found the concept of confluence hunting somewhat strange, but was willing to take us there. He knew the area well and we set off. As we approached the confluence point he told us that when he was a boy he suffered from stammering. His parents then took him to a wise man who lived in that area. Some kind of treatment took place and he was cured. When we stopped at the roadside just a few meters from the confluence point it all came back to him. He consulted an old man who passed by and had it confirmed that the wise man had lived more or less on that spot. He had, however, passed away many years ago.
Our Garmin placed the confluence point not in the field by the road, but in the middle of some "burning" nettles and cannabis weeds between the field and the road. So we settled for 1 meter. The time on the GPS is Central European time (CET).
