31-Mar-2002 -- This confluence is near Mitrópolis, a small town on the east coast of the Peloponnese. Since we were coming from the north, we had to make quite a detour to arrive there, as there is no continuing road along the coast. The shortest way to reach Mitrópolis was to follow a few very bad dirt roads with enormous potholes, rocks and rather deep pools, so we had to drive our rental Hyunday at a walking pace. Yet another dirt road leads from Mitrópolis up north along the coast and we followed it for a few kilometres.
Our GPS indicated that the confluence was on the eastside of the road, in the direction of the sea, and we didn’t know whether it was actually on land or just in the water. The coast was rather steep, so we thought it might be quite a challenge to reach the spot. We parked our car at about 300 metres from the confluence and at that point it was still unclear whether we could actually get there.
We followed a path leading down and discovered that our confluence was in an old olive orchard (what a coincidence, probably the only accessible part of the coast in the neighborhood, there were terraces that made descending a lot easier). The spot was between the olive trees and had a fantastic view. The distance to the sea was only about 40 metres and the height above sea level about 20 metres (the gps reading exaggerated the height by about 16 metres we noticed). This certainly was the most beautiful confluence we visited up to now.
