31-May-2001 -- I am now living for almost 7 years in China but only recently I learned about confluence from Deutsche Welle TV. Because I am equipped with all necessary tools me and my friend PiYu (the lady in the picture) immediately started to search. But this is rather difficult in China, at least more difficult than expected. Some points are on lakes some points are heavily defended by farmers.

First we succeeded was the point N38 E115. In a temperature of around 42°C we could mark it exactly in a field close to the village Zhao Wei Cun near Shijiazhuang. Surprisingly this village has a new very beautiful Catholic church and the people there believe in this. We took the photos in all directions and one from the church too. From the data displayed on the Garmin GPS we could not take a better one because of lots of reflections. I hope that this will anyhow prove the point, so that we can continue to search for others.

Photos 1 for position 2 to 5 all directions, 6 accompany, 7 church.
