21-Окт-2006 – Продолжение поездки от 52°N 26°E.

История о точке 52°N 27°E – это история про замечательных людей. Точка находится прямо в деревне, а точнее в сарае, где во время нашего посещения обитал милейший поросенок. Когда мы подъехали к частным владениям, то некоторое время просто не решались войти во двор. Поэтому, как партизаны, полезли с заднего двора, через огород с капустой. Подошли к сараю и стали фотографировать. Вышел хозяин из дома и справедливости ради поинтересовался, кто мы такие. После непродолжительной беседы вышла и хозяйка дома. Какое-то время мы говорили о жизни и о близких нам людях. А когда прощались, хозяева угостили нас целым мешком огромных, сочных и очень сладких яблок.


21-Oct-2006 – Continued from 52°N 26°E.

The story about visiting CP 52°N 27°E is a story about wonderful people. The point is located in the village. More precisely, right in the barn where pretty piggy lived. When we approached to the private authority we didn't venture to come in. Then we, like partisans, went around and entered via backyard, through the cabbage beds. We came to the barn and begun to make pictures. The master went out the house and certainly asked who we are. After some conversation the mistress appeared. We continued our talk about life and families. When we made our farewells the hosts presented us the sack of huge, juicy, very sweet apples.

Attention: In December 1989 the area around the Confluence had a radioactive surface contamination from Caesium-137 of 37-185 kBq/m², the half-life of Cs-137 being 30 years. Thus the time of stay in this area should be kept as short as possible and appropriate measures should be taken by the visitors to protect themselves against any radioactive contamination.
