04-Sep-2005 -- We decided to reach this point after a 200-kilometre bicycle trip. On Saturday, the 3rd of September, we started from Apostolovo of Khersons'ka Oblast' to water reservoir Kakhovs'ke and rode all day long along its beach, viewing beautiful nature. Late in the night we stopped near canal and fell asleep on the ground even without camp.

Next day we woke up at 6 a.m. and started to the point. The strong wind blew direct in our faces and we rode slowly. Only at afternoon we reached the confluence and had a rest. But we had to ride bicycles about 130 km to reach the Melitopol and go home on the train.... We were very tired and reached the railway only in the deep of night.

Next day, on Monday, all of us slept in our offices, but we were happy, we did it!
