#1: 412 m to the Confluence

(visited by Helmut Resch and Babs Coleman)

17-Mar-2008 -- This is the 13th 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 6N 0.

We are leaving the Safari Beach Resort outside of Dixcove and are traveling towards Agona junction. From there we take the road leading to Tarkwa. At Nsuaem we turn off from the main road and drive through the village and get as close as 1.2 km to the Confluence.

We could have continued a bit further but there was a big hole in our way filled with water. We did not want to take a chance and continued on foot. We got as close as 412 meters to the Confluence when we noticed that a lot of dark clouds were building up for a good tropical downpour. We decided to give this Confluence as miss, this time, and returned to our vehicle.

Continued at 9N 1W.
