  31°N 56°E (incomplete) 

(visited by Patrice de Wergifosse)

17-Mar-2012 -- I arrived to the point straight (so to speak) from 32N 56E. I didn't bother to prepare the itinerary with Google Earth since there were some obvious tracks on my map. However there were 10 times more tracks and villages than on the map. So after a lot of dead ends, a lot of guessing and mainly navigating with the compass, I eventually got over the mountains and reached the railway going to Sīrīz. All the locals wanted to send me on a long road around, but I decided not to listen to them and I did well.

The point is between the railway and the road in a field of trees that I could not identify. The point was an easy grab as well and I left directly to 31N 57E, trying to get it and still reach Kermān before sunset.

It was on the 53rd day of my trip back from Belgium to Dubayy in the U.A.E. For more pictures and stories, you are welcome to visit my blog.
