#1: North view

(visited by Captain Peter and Thomas Schmitt)

14-Oct-2005 -- In order to complete the film shooting works for "Adventure Atlas", a documentary which will be broadcasted by ARTE TV somewhen in 2006, Thomas, who was already with me on the "Nova Scotia" during our trip to 51S 61W at the Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas, did pay me a visit at my home in Sicily.

The Degree Confluence Project will play a role in this movie as well, and so we decided to go for a rather close-by point, namely 37N 15E, which I have visited already several times.

All is unchanged there, except that with my camera, which I purchased last year, I can submit now photos in a higher quality. We attach the views to North, to the East, to the South, and to the West.

After five visits it is probably worth to have a look what is behind the view to South, which due to a hill is quite limited from the Confluence. Well, the extended view to South may give us an impression of the area.

The famous road sign is still here in its usual condition.
