31-Jan-2004 -- As a part of a 5 day trip along three of the major oases of Egypt, we spent a night in the famous White Desert, to the north of the oasis of Farafra. The following day, on our way to Dakhla, we passed Qaṣr al-Farāfira, and had just enough time to visit this confluence point. It is located about 8 kilometers off the tarmac road, in the middle of a sandy area, covered with small black stones, leaving very clear tire tracks.
Picture 1 shows the emptiness of the place; it is the confluence point and a view to the north. Pictures 2, 3 and 4 are views to the East, South and West. Picture 5 and 6 show the GPS readings, the instrument being held by my daughter Donna, who accompanied me.
