#1: The confluence

(visited by Penko Roussev, Emanoil Karakashev, Nelli Karakasheva, Veselin Karakashev and Bogomil Roussev)

06-Sep-2003 -- I decided to visit that confluence with some friends on my birthday, because of the description of people who visited it before me, I knew that that confluence was not difficult to be reached. It is a beautiful place of Bulgaria, not far away of Godech city and Dragoman city. The confluence is located close to Power transmission line, which made the view a little bit ugly and the noise from the high voltage in the air, was a little disturbing, despite the good weather we had that day. This is maybe the only confluence which was visited by an efficient notary – a notary certificated confluence. This man, who is used to work with clear and precise concepts from the jurisdiction, I may say was extremely happy by the combination of virtuality and reality, the virtual intersection of latitude and longitude upon the real land, shown by the GPS. Not far away, there is a small river with signs of overflow its banks. I was curious what did the water bring in that area, and I found a coin of 50 stotinki, dating from 1990. During one of the jumps for the picture I lost my glasses, so I had to go back in about a week in order to get them. It’s another thing when you’ve been to a place and return back to it – I took the distance from Sofia for 1hour and 40 minutes – in both directions.
