25-Sep-2010 -- Being recently a resident of `Ammān, I decided to head for this Confluence, situated not far from home, on the other side of the city. This Confluence point should be one of the rare Confluences to be located within a capital city.

As it seems, driving to this Confluence does not need a lot of preparation. This Confluence has nothing to see anymore with the first visit of 1999. Being located 20 meters from one of the main streets leaving `Ammān, you don't feel lonely at the confluence point. The noise of cars never stops (it was a Saturday afternoon). All the area is now almost completely built.

Compared to the visit of April 2009, nothing has changed much, except that the 5th floor is not completed yet (and you can notice that today the windows on the side of the building have disappeared), but more walls have been added to make a 6th and 7th floor. The plot next to this building is still not built yet.

Regarding the exact location of the confluence point, I managed to have either 32.000000 or 36.000000, but never both at the same time, as I did not manage to get the signal inside the building.

Ok, now it's around 13h00, time to head back home for lunch.
