25-Feb-2008 -- This is the 10th 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 8N 2E.
We are leaving Lomé and take the N1 out of town and are heading north to Notsé. The next village after Notsé is Kpédomé where we turn off to Alati. At Alati we turn off to Siniga and managed this way to get as close as 1.5 km to the Confluence. After driving around in the forest plantation we found a way to the village named Yokou and were 1.25 km away from the Confluence. We parked our vehicle under a shady tree and walked the remaining distance to the Confluence.
On the way to the Confluence we saw some huge termite hills. It was around 2 p.m. when we were at the Confluence and it was 37°C. We did not spend much time at the Confluence, just made the necessary documentation and returned to the village.
We rested for a while under the nice tree where we had parked our vehicle. The villagers were very amused about our digital camera. Once we showed them the pictures they could not stop posing for the camera. We made our way back to the main road and continued driving in the direction of the last unvisited confluence in Togo.
