Français

24-fév-2013 -- Nous quittons Ouagadougou par la N1, direction Bobo-Dioulasso. Un peu après l'embranchement vers Koudougou, nous prenons une piste vers le Sud, vers le barrage de Savili. Après avoir longé l'évacuateur de crue du barrage, nous continuons vers le sud, en suivant le GPS. Une piste nous conduit tout près du point 12N 2W. Aucun problème pour y arriver.

Il se trouve dans un ancien champ de coton qui est maintenant en jachère. Tout autour, beaucoup de raisiniers (Lannea microcarpa), et quelques nérés (Parkia biglobosa) qui sont en fleurs, on dirait des boules de Noël.

Nous continuons notre journée vers Boromo, pour visiter le point 12N 3W.

English version

24-Feb-2013 -- We leave Ouagadougou on the N1 road towards Bobo-Dioulasso. Not far after the junction to Koudougou, we follow a track towards the South, in direction of the Savili dam. After we went along the spillway of the dam, we continue towards the South following the GPS. An easy track comes very close to the point 12N 2W. No problem to reach it.

It is in an old cotton field which is now in fallow. All around, many raisiniers (Lannea microcarpa), and some nérés (Parkia biglobosa) which are in full bloom, they look like Christmas trees full of Christmas baubles.

We continue our trip towards Boromo to visit the point 12N 3W.
