#1: About 100m from confluence

(visited by Anton Tran)

02-Jul-2005 -- In this nasty saturday, alone and in intent to test my new i-jame with OziCE, I decided to visit 21N 106E which is maybe the easiest confluence in Vietnam.

It took me nearly 45 min to get to 21N 106E from the "Return Sword Lake" followed national road 5 and guided by the map that I have in my OziCE on my motobike. The most difficult for me is locate exact, fixed 21N 106E, cause in this day, my OziCE with my Fortuna Clip-on cannot fix the location well.

Near the confluence I make a call to Nguyen Tai Hai, firsly to concratulate the HuyNo's mariage, and secondly to know, when they make a visit to 14N 108E. It turned that HuyNO will celebrate his mariage at the confluence in next day, Sunday 3 July. Please joint with me to say "a hundred years of happy" to him and his wife !

On return way, when I get near the national road N# 5, I saw the flower fields, but at this time of the year, the field is not colourfull as expected.

I strongly recommend to any confluence hunter to visit this 21N 106E if he/she is around.
