(visited by Wolfgang Vogel and Silke Heilig)

20-Feb-2011 -- It was already 30 minutes after dusk and you could literally watch the darkness to cover the country side. We gave it a try because we just had to walk along a snow covered field some hundred meters to this confluence. We passed a house and heard a dog barking but didn’t take much notice of it. We ended near a wood shed and started spotting the confluence. Suddenly a loud finish female voice appeared and told us a lot we absolutely didn’t understand… She was not able to understand English or German either so just kept talking loud in Finnish. We had some problems to take pictures and had to use flash light to picture the four directions. We decided to leave not to make her anger bigger as it probably was already and took a picture of ourselves at our car beside the motorway. We are sorry about the trouble we might have caused but are not sure why she was so mad about us since we know from Finnish culture that you can walk along any path you choose to take as long as you don’t enter private property – maybe that was the reason why.

Coordinator's Note: We have a policy that confluence visit photos should not require flash, since that makes it hard to show what the area looks like.
