#1: The Confluence from 30 m distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz)

21-Feb-2016 -- This is the second out of two reports reaching confluence points during a bicycle trip through southern Spain. The story continues from 37°N 5°W.

After spending the night in the little town Las Cabezas de San Juan, which is 5 km from this confluence as the crows fly, I set off in the early morning with the first twilight. Since there is no direct route, I had to cycle the double distance in order to reach the confluence point.

It is located in a village called Marismillas in the Calle Caballeros no. 15. The precise location is probably 2-3 meters behind the front door inside the house. The house is a tiny one-story building with a corrugated sheet roof.

When I reached the confluence on a Sunday morning short before sunrise, nobody was out in the street such that I could take the pictures of the confluence without any disturbance.

However, the bar at the end of the street was already open such that I could enjoy a cup of coffee after the confluence had been documented successfully. From now on I rode my bicycle back to Malaga for the next 2 days, spending the night in historic Ronda.
