05-Nov-2013 -- Viene de 49°N 1°E.

Estando de vacaciones en Europa para visitar a mi hijo, como todo cazador de confluencia aproveché la oportunidad y visité 12 confluencias (una incompleta) incluyendo una en Francia no visitada hasta la fecha.

Hoy iniciamos un recorrido intensivo de 3 días y 9 confluencias en 4 países. Para ello alquilamos bien temprano un carro en Paris (nos dieron el carro mas horrible del mundo un Citroën C3 Picasso) y salimos de la ciudad hacia el Este por la autopista A4. El tráfico era horrible agravado por la lluvia, lo cual hacia que el recorrido por la autopista no rindiera como estaba previsto.

Al llegar a las cercanías de Verrières, salimos de la autopista A4 y tomamos la carretera D63 hacia el sur. Pasamos por Villers-En-Argonne, tomamos la D68 y hasta Le Chemin donde tomamos la carretera D65 y llegamos a la población de Éclaires donde se encuentra ubicada la confluencia.

La lluvia continuaba y la temperatura era de 3°C, estacioné el carro a un lado de la calle frente a la iglesia y procedí acercarme lo mas posible a la confluencia, tomé las fotos y retorné al carro rápidamente ya que teníamos otras 2 confluencias programadas para el día de hoy.

La secuencia de casería de confluencias continúa en 50°N 5°E.

05-Nov-2013 -- Comes from49°N 1°E.

Been on vacation in Europe to visit my son, as every confluence hunter I took the opportunity and visited 12 Confluences (one incomplete) including one in France not visited so far.

Today we started an intensive tour of 9 confluence in 4 countries and 3 days. So we rented very early a car in Paris (got the most horrible car in the world, a Citroën C3 Picasso) and left the city to the East through the A4 highway. The traffic was horribly exacerbated by the rain, such that the travel on the highway was not as easy as planned.

Upon reaching the vicinity of Verrières, we left the A4 highway and took the D63 road towards the South. We went through Villers-en-Argonne, we took the D68 and up to Le Chemin where we turned to D65 road and arrived to Éclaires town where the Confluence is located.

The rain continued and the temperature was 3 °C, we parked the car on one side of the street in front of the church and proceeded to walk approaching the most possible to the Confluence, I took photos and returned to the car quickly since we had another 2 Confluences planned for today.

Confluence hunting sequence continues at 50°N 5°E.
