19-Oct-2013 -- Estando de vacaciones en Europa para visitar a mi hijo, como todo cazador de confluencia aproveché la oportunidad y visité 12 confluencias (una incompleta) incluyendo una en Francia no visitada hasta la fecha.

Aprovechando unos días que mi hijo tenía de vacaciones y su pareja, nos fuimos a conocer a la familia de su novia en la ciudad de Bordeaux, al suroeste de Francia.

Ésta es una región reconocida mundialmente por sus excelentes vinos y por supuesto dimos un gran paseo por viñedos así como por la extraordinaria ciudad de Bordeaux y Saint Emilion.

Luego de pasar un extraordinario y relajante día por Saint Emilion, procedimos a dirigirnos a N45 0 ya casi al atardecer. Nos fuimos por carreteras secundarias rápidamente y después de 23 km ya estábamos estacionando frente a la confluencia, la cual está localizada a un lado de la rampa de acceso a la autopista A89.

Caminamos unos pocos metros y en pocos segundos ya a las 7pm se inicia la gloriosa Danza de la Confluencia, ésta muy espacial ya que era sobre el meridiano de Greenwich. Nuevamente logro poner los pies al mismo tiempo en cada hemisferio del planeta.

El suegro de mi hijo, experto cepes agarro uno a muy pocos metros de la confluencia, el cual nos lo comimos posteriormente en la casa como parte de la celebración familiar.

La secuencia de casería de confluencias continúa en 50°N 1°E.

19-Oct-2013 -- Been on vacation in Europe to visit my son, as every confluence hunter, I took the opportunity and visited 12 confluences (one incomplete) including one in France not visited so far.

My son and his girlfriend had a few days of vacation available, so we met his family-in-law in the city of Bordeaux, southwestern France.

This is a region well known worldwide for its excellent wines and of course we took a big walk through vineyards and by the extraordinary city of Bordeaux as well as Saint Emilion.

After spending a superb and relaxing day in Saint Emilion, we proceeded to head to N45 0 almost at sunset. We quickly went through secondary roads and after 23 km we were parking in front to the CP, which is located beside the access ramp to highway A89.

We walked a few meters and suddenly at 7 pm, started the Glorious Confluence Dance, this one very special because it was on Greenwich meridian. Once again, I set foot simultaneously in each hemisphere.

My son´s father-in-law is an expert on mushrooms and grabbed some just a few meters from the confluence, which we later ate at home as part of the family celebration.

Confluence hunting sequence continues at 50°N 1°E.
