06-Nov-2013 -- Viene de 50°N 7°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.

Salimos de 50°N 7°E y entramos en la super autopista A1 hacia el sur hasta la ciudad de Saarbrücken, luego llegamos a Unner donde cruzamos la frontera hacia Francia. Continuamos hacia el sur por la carretera N61. Atravesamos la población de Willerwald y luego Sarralbe.

Acá tomamos la carretera D656 y luego una camino de tierra y barro (había llovido) de solo 1.3 km el cual nos llevó hasta la confluencia, la cual podíamos distinguir a la distancia por la planta de tratamiento de agua ubicada a un costado de la confluencia.

Caminé rápidamente unos pocos metros y ya me encontraba haciendo la famosa Danza de la Confluencia. La temperatura estaba en 4°C por lo cual tomé las fotos lo mas pronto posible y regresé al carro, para iniciar el camino hacia nuestro próximo objetivo. Cuando iniciamos el trayecto hacia la próxima confluencia pasamos por la población de Keskastel, donde vimos una panadería llamada curiosamente “Le Venezuela”, quizás algunos paisanos en estas remotas latitudes.

La secuencia de casería de confluencias continúa en 49°N 8°E.

06-Nov-2013 -- Comes from 50°N 7°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.

We left 50°N 7°E and entered the super highway A1 towards South to the city of Saarbrücken, then we reach Unner where we crossed the border into France. We continues south on the N61 road. We went through the towns of Willerwald and then Sarralbe.

Here we took the D656 road and then a muddy path (it had rained) of only 1.3 km that took us to the Confluence, which we could distinguish at the distance by the treatment water plant located beside the confluence.

I quickly walked a few meters and was doing the famous Confluence Dance. The temperature was 4°C, so I took the pictures as soon as possible and returned to the car to start the way towards our next goal. When we started the journey towards the next Confluence, we went through the population of Keskastel, where we saw a bakery curiously called "Le Venezuela", perhaps some countrymen in this remote area.

Confluence hunting sequence continues at 49°N 8°E.
