04-Aug-2008 -- This is the 37th of a series of 83 confluence visits during our voyage from Nigeria to Europe and back to Nigeria around the entire African continent. It all started on 28 January at 11N 5E.

Story continues from 50N 9E.

After spending a couple of days in Aschaffenburg, we went to Marburg to visit Peter and Dagmar. Peter is a keen reader of our confluence visits. We have been spending a very nice evening together catching up on all the news since the last visit.

The next morning we visited the confluence in Peter's vehicle. The in-build navigation system showed us the way to Gemünden-Wohra from there we used our GPS and followed the arrow and got as close as 250 meters. Unfortunately we had very bad weather and GPS reception was very poor. It took us some time till we got all the zeros lined up, but succeeded eventually.

Continued at 48N 14E.
