10-Мая-2007 – 10 мая рано утром мы со всей семьёй поехали в сторону Бондарей из Рассказово. Доехали до посёлка Бондари, затем свернули направо, проехали несколько километров по полевой дороге и увидели на левой стороне геодезический знак. От этого знака прошли примерно 200 метров до конфлюентной точке и на открыли там бутылку вина... УРА!

Затем мы пошли назад к геодезическому знаку, где родственники устроили маленький пикник. Была очень хорошая погода.

10-May-2007 – That day, at early morning we (in all-family crew) set off from Rasskazovo towards Bondary settlement. After Bondary we turned to the right and drove several kms onto a field dirt road till we noticed a geodesic sign at the left. We walked about 200 m from this sign to the confluence and uncorked a bottle of wine there. Hurray!

Then we returned to the geodesic sign, where my relatives organized a picnic. There was very nice weather.

Coordinator's Note: This visit is marked as incomplete since it doesn't meet minimum photo requirements.
