(visited by Matthias Kramer)

16-Mar-2010 -- This confluence point is an easy one. Situated at the north of Erfurt, capital of Thuringia, the point can be found not far from the new autobahn A71, exit Erfurt-Gispersleben. A few kilometers down the B4 there is an OBI DIY-store. Near there we parked the car at the edge of field.

The point of confluence we found quite quickly. Fortunately it wasn’t too wet, so we didn’t need the rubber boots as we feared. The photos of the scenery with a commercial and a residential zone around were taken quickly and so we could tick off our next confluence point.

Back in the car again there was a little surprise with another lot of zeros: Just in the moment when we arrived at the confluence point my car odometer stood exactly at 150 000 km. Nice coincidence. :-)
