#1: the confluence spot

(visited by Dariusz Stefan and Anna Tomczak-Stefan)

20-May-2001 -- 20-May-2001. Confluence 52N 019E is located 16 km to the WSW of Łęczyca.

We went there on Sunday on our way to confluence 52N 020E. We wanted to see the place for the planned meeting of all the Polish project participants. It was a bit of luck as the spot is not suitable for such meetings. The country road between the villages of Wartkowice and Dzierżawy was not an ideal place to park the cars. Neither were the fields nearby. So, having left my wife in the car, I went for some hundred meters walk on a swampy meadow which turned out to be an almost dry pond. There was reed growing around it. I had to jump from a clump of grass onto another to locate the spot and yet, I my shoes got thoroughly wet.

Shortly afterwards we went to 52N 18E, which I am not going to describe, as it was not an official visit. The area is fit for a mid-summer picknic and the closing meeting for the Degree Confluence Project in Poland.
