(visited by Wolfgang Seel)

19-Mar-2009 -- This Confluence was visited in late afternoon of 19 March 2009. We were on the way from Dirj to Ġāt taking a track parallel to the Algerian border.

The satellite picture promised a rocky surrounding, so we were not sure if access by car was possible. To our surprise the landscape was fine gravel instead. Bigger stones were just enough to build a small cairn at the spot.

Not far from there was a place where we found ball-shaped stones on the ground.

Continued at 27N 13E.
