#1: Looking east

(visited by Bent Gabrielsen and Tove Gabrielsen)

03-Feb-2001 -- We escaped from our cold Danish winter and went to Spain for a short vacation.

Our plan was to get some sun and to make a couple of confluences.

This is N37W05. It was not too difficult to find, thanks to our GPS. It was close to the little town Almargen. We only had to walk some 30 m from the gravel road where we parked our rented car, to the exact spot just besides the railway track connecting the cities Granada and Algeciras. We took the photos and talked about the strange Spanish places you discover when you work with this confluence project. Places normal tourists never visit. We enjoyed it.
