#1: View from the confluence

(visited by Penko Roussev, Bogomil Roussev, Ivan Shopov, Dobromir Kotev and Maria Juroukova)

18-Jul-2003 -- The confluence is comparatively easy to conquer – 3 of 6 from the scale of complexity. Its situated near village Hirevo, not very far from a major road artery. Unfortunately, the only place where we could leave the car was near a poultry farm, next to the disposal of litter. It was getting dark, when we reached the place, and it couldn't be any other place, but the confluence's place. I was curious which kind of plant could live at those latitudes and longitudes. The spot was occupied by this big dog rose. Its going to take it a lot of evolution in order to realize where it is.

Not long after we jumped out of happiness that we've found the confluence, the local village dogs have arrived, and that made us go quickly in the car.

I've cut my cuticles and nails specially for the picture.
