#1: The confluence area, looking north

(visited by M Eltomey and Ahmed Elhalwagy)

31-Oct-2008 -- Our first confluence visit.

The visit went very smooth except for a small miscalculation, which made us go through a recently irrigated field and get our shoes all messed up with mud. Later we discovered there was a cleaner, drier, and easier access to it.

Looking forward for more Confluences...
