#1: The area

(visited by netrunner and Mister Saigon)

02-May-2001 -- My last confluence in Italy for this trip – and my father was very happy about this decision.

At least an almost easy one, the field where 45N 11E is located is only surrounded by a 3-meters wide brook. I have never found the passage where the farmer is supposed to bring his tractor over, but I have found an alternate way.

The factories surrounding the field with the confluence were closed for the Sunday, and so there was nobody who had the will to expel us.

After crossing the brook I marked the confluence (another of these sticks some farmer will find, wonder a little about and throw away ;) and left – to celebrate our successes with a lot of wine.

Until my next trip (supposedly to Vietnam).

Start over with visit 1/4 of my Italy trip.
