(visited by Megbil al-Shammary and Abdulaziz al-Umari)

01-Feb-2007 -- Today we had no plan to visit any Confluences, but when we set ourselves for bird hunting in al-Dibdiba desert near the Saudi-Kuwayti border, we found that confluence 28N 47E was near to our route, so we added this confluence visit to our trip.

Our trip started from our home in Dammām to Nu`ayriyya northwest of Dammām on Thursday, 1 February 2007. First we visited the public bazaar in Nu`ayriyya, then we moved to Su`ayyira about 100 km from Nu`ayriyya to stop for a final fuelling.

We then moved from Su`ayyira to this Confluence to get some photo shots, we stayed at the Confluence for about 15 minutes, and then we continued our hunting trip, it was a very nice trip.
