#1: Looking North

(visited by Uwe Bertele and Brigitte Rennhard)

02-Nov-2007 -- Continued from 31N 21E.

We were on a trib through Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt to the Gilf Kabīr and Jabal al-`Uwaynāt.

On the way from Ṭubruq to the Egyptian border, the group had a pit stop to fill diesel south of Ṭubruq. A few kilomers south along the street, the CP 32N 24E was very close to the street. We took the chance and had a look. The spot is not more than 100 m from the main street and looks more like a garbage bin.

Continued at 25N 28E.
