24-Fév-2002 -- Après notre tentative infructueuse mais prévue d'atteindre le point 24N 52E car il se situe dans les eaux du Golfe, nous partons à la recherche du 24N 53E, qui est sur la terre ferme.

Mais nous ne l'atteindrons malheureusement pas non plus. Il est situé à environ 10 km au sud de la route mais il y a des clôtures qui nous empêchent de nous y rendre. Après avoir demandé la permission pour en traverser une, nous nous sommes aperçu qu'il y en avait d'autres encore, et sans barrière ouverte. Comme il commençait à se faire tard, nous abandonnons la partie, un peu déçus mais confiants pour le prochain.

English version

24-Feb-2002 -- After our attempt, unfruitful but foreseen to reach the 24N 52E confluence point, which is in the waters of the Arabian Gulf, we set off to find the 24N 53E which we know is on the ground.

But we unfortunately won't reach it either. It is situated at about 10 km south of the road, but there are fences that prevent us from going on. After asking permission to go through the first one, we noticed that there were many more, with no gates to get through. It's getting late so we decide to give up for this one, a little disappointed, but self confident for the next one.
