08-Sep-2001 -- This is a very easy confluence to reach: We just travelled from the peninsula Chalkidiki north on the road 59 and took a turnoff to the right on a smaller, numberless road heading the town Drama. But long before Drama entering the village Nea Bafra we turned left into a country road, because the GPS showed a distance of a bit more than 1km to the confluence. Over country roads in rather good condition we found the confluence just 70m beside the road.

We reached the confluence at 12:00 local time. It is placed in an empty field in an altitude of 151m.

The pics 1-8 show the view from the confluence in NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW and N-direction. The pictures can be laid together to form a 360°-panorama-view. Pic 9 is the GPS-display of the confluence. Pic 10 shows me standing on the confluence.

The mountains in the NE are the Falakro-chain (2232m, dist. 20km), in the south you can see the mountain Pangaion (1926m, dist. 10km). We didn't really find out what the strange-looking building was used for; It's an abandoned hut with a yard of the size of a tennis court surrounded by a stone-wall that might have been used as a shelter for a herd of sheep or goats.
