13-Feb-2008 -- This is the 8th of a series of 83 confluence visits during our voyage from Nigeria to Europe and back to Nigeria around the entire African continent. It all started on 28 January at 11N 5E.

Story continues from 11N 1E.

We are travelling from Djougou to Bassila. At Bassila we take the road leading to Manigri and then follow the road to Igbéré and continue for a couple of kilometres.

The Confluence is 100 meters off the road in the forest. We had difficulties to get all the zeros lined up due to the location in the forest but eventually succeeded. A few hundred meters from the Confluence is a small settlement. The road to the Confluence is surprisingly good.

Continued at 8N 2E.
