#1: Looking South

(visited by Tibor Piroth and Jürgen Salrein)

10-Sep-2006 -- After visiting 25S 27E in the morning we thought that one more DCP is possible on that day and headed South. 140 km on paved roads later we turned into a field path leading as close as 2 km to 26S 27E.

We arrived at a fenced area and had to park the car. The last 2 km to the confluence point were an unpleasant walk through knee-high grass, bushes and thistles. To come to the point without making any big deviations, we had to climb several semi-high fences. After probably one hour negotiating the terrain, we arrived at the DCP which is in the middle of some unspectacular fields. Really not much to see there.
