30-Mar-2009 -- Continued from 27N 13E.

This Confluence lies in the northwestern part of the Awbāriy Sandsea in an area not very much frequented other by sand freaks like me. The point lies on top of a dune chain.

Since it was almost sunset, we decided to put camp at a beautiful dune terrace 200 meters short of the Confluence. Equipped with our obligatory sunset cocktail set, we walked the short distance to take the required pictures.
