#1: From the road at 12°E

(visited by Captain Peter)

08-Oct-2001 -- 7-oct-2001 - at 1030hrs CEST I left my home in Taormina by car. I went on the highway route to Rome, took the southern ring and proceeded on Highway A12 in direction Civitavecchia. At Exit "Cerveteri-Ladispoli" I left the highway and went into the small sea resort Ladispoli and spent overnight in a hotel.

On 08-oct-2001 I got up early at 0700hrs and after breakfast I took the State Street SS1 North-West in direction Civitavecchia. When I reached exactly Longitude 12°E I stopped and had a look.

What I saw looked promising. A yellow corn field after harvest and a recently plowed field. No problem to proceed and after a 400 metres or so I was on the point. I made the obligatory four fotos (South, West, North and East).

The area is agricultural, but there is a barrack and airport of Italian Air Force close by.

The typical flower there is the chamomile, which I recommend to all those suffering from various diseases. No animals except snails I found. Snails, compared with dogs, are real pleasant confluence-companions.
