(visited by Jan Kleinn and Doerte Aller)

24-May-2001 -- As I've been in the area of Le Puy again, I thought I'd justvisit the confluence point with my girlfriend and another friend from Zurich. The hardest part of finding the point was to find the small street leading out of the village of Lantriac. As soon as we had found this street, we just had to follow it, until we reached the point. Just by stepping to the side of the street, we've been able to get close enough. Unfortunately this point is by no way representing the southern Auvergne and the Departement de la Haute-Loire. There are much nicer spots just a few Kilometers away, e.g. along the Loire River.
